Office Chair Refurbishment


I have a crappy office chair that I got from my grandfather (who's probably had it since '95); I need advice as to what I could do with it to make it look, well, less like a piece of crap.

Apply new fabric or pick up a new chair.

Probably not worth it unless there's sentimental value. Ask your local re-upholstery shop for a boxed slip-seat and back quote.
If you're doing it yourself you will need approximately 1 1/2 yards (depending on pattern repeat and welt) and you may want to change the foam.
But I would price out new ones. I just picked up one for $45, and my black leather (from Staples) was around $100.
