My Ikea hacks: old office chair makeover

Materials I used besides an ancient Ikea office chair (the new version of it is called Snille, I have no idea what this was called back then): fine sanding paper, spray primer, spray paint, 2 Nedda chair pads, universal glue.

This was the first time for me to paint plastic and I love everything about it. It was easy, and I am really happy with the result. Let me also throw in a word about Nedda pads. I think the are amazing. So beautiful, yet extremely cheap. Just look at them:
You can do all sorts of cool projects with them, I know I will!
