I bought this chair for $30 on CraigsList because I liked the design. However, it is in pretty bad shape and until I have the budget for reupholstering it, I thought I'd camouflage the worn out and stained original upholstery with a bottle of Rit liquid dye, a paintbrush and my garden hose. It was super easy and I think the chair looks SO much better!  P.S. This is the second time I've dyed an upholstered chair (see my studio for the other chair). I've been sitting in the first chair daily…
