PB Kids Chair SIMPLE spruce-up!

We all love Pottery Barn
but we all hate Pottery barn prices!
Can I get an AMEN?! :)

So when I saw this PB Kids Everyday Chair at the thrift store for $5.00, I practically RAN to the other side to stake my claim!!

Luckily, the chair itself was in great condition, it just needed a good wash!

The only problem?

Monkey's name is NOT Ian.

No worries ... we're DIY'ers, right?
I had great plans of making this my first "re-covering" project ...
but it just seems WAY too daunting at the moment.

So the next best thing?
An Applique large enough to hide the word Ian!

So this is what it looks like now!!

Not too bad for $5.00!!

Oh by the way - these PB Anywhere Chair sells for $99.00+.
