And after the dye job, and refitting it to chair, this is what she looked like after:
it’s a bit of an improvement, but it turned the material into a smoky blue colour (kind of hard to tell with the picture).
Here it stands today with a bit of furry TLC:
And the fit? The wash shrunk the material a smidge, but I still had to tuck a lot of that baby’s saggy cheeks into the cushions (which you can see below).
Now, I probably should’ve given up a LONG time ago on this baby, but this is the most comfy chair I’ve ever sat in (and the lower armrests will be a big help when I’m using it as a nursing chair with a bulky breast-feeding pillow).
And the fact that this chair only cost me a little over $50 with discounts from the slipcover company, and using a coupon for the dye, I can overlook it’s disheveled appearance.
Well, there ya have it. My crazy commitment to the free chair!! It’s not perfect, but it’ll be fine for midnight feedings, vomit, and whatever other liquids come with the baby! ;)
Have a terrific Tuesday!
