I recovered my extremely old thrifted office chair using a shower curtain that matches my window curtains in my sewing room. The color of this fabric is what I based the wall color of my room on.
This was surprisingly easy to do. I really just pinned the fabric, cut around the edges, sewed it together, pasted and hand-sewed to close. For the seat I just used some elastic to help it conform, and then my handy spray adhesive :) I love it! I should have done this way sooner! Now all I have left is to paint my rocking chair white and recover the cushion. See my profile for pics of my sewing room if your interested.
