Mini chair makeover

The little chair that I bought from Oxfam last week has a new look. I quite liked the  yellow seat but I decided that cheerier colours fit better into our house. I bought the oil cloth at the Cath Kidston store in Covent Garden. You can purchase part of a metre from the shops, which is great, as the Cath oil cloth is more expensive than many.
This is the kind of instant makeover project that I like: the seat clips in with four wooden pegs, so I just flipped it out, cut my patterned oilcloth to fit, fixed it with a staple gun, and popped it back again. Job done!

This is the 'before' shot:
