Chair Makeover

Check out this chair that I found at Goodwill for $14.00. Not exactly my taste at the moment but I'm looking forward to giving it a makeover, thanks to one of my favorite inspiration do-it-yourself blogs, Life in the Fun Lane. (Please excuse the masses of cords in the corner...that is a project for another day. )

This is my inspiration photo, taken from Life in the Fun Lane. I'm thinking about lightly sanding, priming and painting the chair later today. Wondering whether I should hire an upholsterer or attempt to change the upholstery myself. Life is good when you're on stay-cation.
