Besides the shredded fabric, it was a little wobbly. To fix that, I jammed a popsicle stick between the leg and the base of the chair from underneath. Once I got it in far enough to stop the wobble, I broke it off--you can't even see it.
I always have some fabric scraps laying around that I pick up at garage sales for cheap and I had this awesome ticking fabric that was heavy weight. I matched the paint color to it and this is what I came up with:
I couldn't believe I knew the fabric was called ticking. The word came into my head and I Googled it to make sure I was right. I guess some of the 1,795,048,631 things my mom told me in my life actually stuck in my head!
She would be proud.
