And I've now gotten one thing crossed off my UFO list. At this rate, I should get 4 things done all year...
This was what my son's gamer chair looked like. He, and his siblings, have a habit of standing up on it and eventually it popped a hole right through the seat.
The thing that amazed me most was how cheaply made this chair was. It was basically hollow inside.
I shored up the seat with this piece of pine which I screwed into the frame. Then on top of this I put a block of foam rubber for extra padding. I cut off all of the vinyl and reused the foam from the original covering.
After visiting JoAnne's remnants table (twice due to not paying attention to how I cut my side pieces) I used the original vinyl as a pattern to sew these tweedy bits of upholstery, added a little headrest pillow and then stapled it all in place. I have another vinyl gamer chair that is going to need the same treatment. #2 son says he wants royal blue and black. We'll see what the remnant table holds :)
