Studio Chair Before and After

Since setting up my studio I have been keeping my eye out for an interesting new desk chair.  We used kitchen cabinets for the base of my work space, so the height was higher than that of a normal desk.  I had no idea how hard it would be to find a taller desk chair, so I opted to go for a counter height bar stool.  

I found one in all of it's micro fiber glory and knew that the shape was good for what I wanted, but the look left something to be desired.  Comfort is also key since I can sit for hours at a time making jewelry.  

I found this graphic yellow and white print that coordinated well with the existing window treatments.  My original intention was to make a removable slip cover, but in the end I went with permanently upholstered.  It gave a more fitted, clean look to the chair.

Take a look at the before:

I'm now trying to decide if I want to paint the legs.  They appear black in the photo, but they are a dark espresso stain.  

I really love the extra pop of fun this print gives the room!  I have so enjoyed working in here and now it's just that much more comfy :)

I wish I had taken pictures of the step by step process, but I get too involved when I start projects like these and don't think about that at the time.  What do you think; paint the legs white or no?
