Hey there! Hope you had a good weekend. I have been searching for a new, um, used chair for my desk, and still have yet to find what I like. So, I figured it’s time to just make the best of what ya got and recover the chair that’s already in place.
Here’s the before of the chair, and let me say this is not the original chair either. It’s already been covered once… or twice. 🙂 Nothing a little spray paint and updated fabric can’t fix.
After some spray paint, primer and white satin, it was time to recover the cushions. I removed the staples from the old fabric with a flat screwdriver. Believe it or not, the staples came out quite easily.
Then cut the fabric to size, making sure to leave extra to be sure it wraps around the cushion.
I did all 4 sides and saved the corners for last. Be sure when you recover a chair that you pull the material tight. You don’t want any bunching up or loose fabric when you get finished.
Cut the excess material at the corner and wrap it tightly while stapling in place. Ignore my messy staple job. Okay, I realize I used a bazillion staples. I was just being thorough, what can I say? 🙂
I did this with both the top cushion and the seat cushion. Then just reattached them to the chair frame and wa-la!
And here’s a sneak peek into this part of the home office makeover. 🙂 I have a little better spot to blog from now. Still work in progress, but coming along. I shared how to make that easy framed corkboard last week too, just in case you missed it. 😉
Have you ever recovered a chair? Thanks for stopping by today! Leave me a note and say hi or tell me what’s going on in your world this week!
