DIY tutorial on recovering a chair using an eggcrate for foam!

as soon as i saw this thomas paul oceanic fabric*, i knew it was perfect for our florida coastal home!
i had learned that i could recover our beautiful, but now flattened, chippendale dining chairs using the eggcrate that my husband desperately wanted off our mattress.  perfect.
i got the fabric in "bark" and it worked perfectly with our color scheme.
plus, it was super easy- here's a tutorial showing how i did it:

*"In the United States, coastal areas of great wealth such as Palm Beach, New Orleans, and Rhode Island's Newport have a history of decorative objects graced by sea creatures...  {the creatures in this thomas paul print} are inspired by the historical prints of sea life seen in lithographs, wood engravings and copper etchings from the 1700s and 1800s." courtesy of
