Old chair – new chair

Materials: An ancient Ikea office chair (the new version of it is called Snille, I have no idea what this was called back then): fine sanding paper, spray primer, spray paint, 2 Nedda chair pads, universal glue.

Description: Sand chair with fine sanding paper before painting, spray paint with primer, spray paint with desired color. Stick Nedda chair pads on with universal glue, and voila…you have a new chair.
