DIY Chair Makeover

Posted by Dori Nottingham

I have a chair that I found at a thrift store and repainted basic black. I've had it for years and it has done it's job (held me off the ground) for that entire time. It looked great when I painted it but I never redid the seat. I recently saw this in the November Issue of Sunset and said to myself....I could redo my chair again and actually make it cute again. It is super easy and any excuse to buy and use cool chic fabric is okay with me. You could even redo a whole dining set or just keep with a simple office chair. Why buy new :)

That is one cute chair. Is that yours? I have a whole dining set to redo, but the wood is the hard part. It is so damaged. I've already recovered the chairs, but it's time to do it again. Who am I kidding...I won't get to it for another year or more.
