Re-Covering a Chair: Part 2

This was my chair after the first go around here:
I was looking at different fabrics to re-cover the chair with when I remembered the set of Eivor panel curtains I'd gotten at Ikea that were by the door to return. Chances of me getting enough fabric to cover the whole thing for less than $14 were very slim so I opened them up:

I looked back at my past post and realized I already had black out fabric underneath the stripes. I ripped out the staples and pulled off the striped fabric. Then I laid the new fabric out and stapled away:

Here is the after!
