DIY Reupholstered Egg Chair

Brad and I were considering a modern rocker we found on Craigslist for the nursery, but we wanted to recover it. The chair has a slight concave molded ¬†shape and I’d hate to spend the money to recover it so I wanted to see if/how we could do it ourselves. That’s how I found this recovered egg chair. I’m always so impressed at any DIY upholstery project, but holy cow! (no pun intended) This one takes the cake!

In total they spent about $200. The chair in cowhide sells for $15,038.00!

Too bad there were no instructions. I also want to know how they scored an egg chair for so cheap. Lucky!! Read more about the transformation at Hip and Stingy.

    I’m also blown away by the the fact that the DWR version retails for $15k. Yowza!
