A Well Needed Chair Makeover

3 Mar

I found two chairs at a thrift store that were quite ugly but in good working condition.  I decided to take a chance and see if I could make them pretty.

Here is a bit of the process:

I wrapped the cushion with fabric like I would wrap a birthday present.

The fabric looks good with the wood but the wood is a bit chipped in places.  I think I might spray paint them to make them look brand new.

If I decide to paint them I will for sure post some pictures.

Quite the difference huh?

    Great job and beautiful fabric! Try rubbing the worn spots with a walnut. You might need a lot of walnuts but just try it in one spot!
