Done! DIY chair refinishing

What's this?  The gray/yellow chair project that has been dragging on for months is just about complete?  And all that's left to do is to tack down the new seat?!  Check it out!

My handy husband cut out the board to cover the seat:


Then, with some quilt batting and a staple gun, I went to work:



It's pretty obvious that the upholstered board is just floating on top of the chair and needs to be permanently affixed to the seat, but at least it's 99% there! 


I really liked this project, but refinishing furniture is now effectively out of my system.  Onto repainting the guest room...
