This chair was to be discarded as ruined (can you guess what happened here?) A hot iron will melt straight through a vinyl chair seat, just in case you didn't know.
The seat and the back were easily removed with a screwdriver. there were just a few screws. I've been saving selvages for a while now and this looked like a good project to use them on. http://selvageblog.blogspot.com/ has been a great inspiration. Using what I learned there I recovered the chair seat in selvage edges in a typical string quilt design. The back of the chair is more of a braid pattern. I like the words on some of the fabrics. On the chair back is "The Times of Your Life" and on the seat it says "Play Your Song."
