What’s my inspiration?
Here we go again, another project for the cabin done on the cheep! I have had this chair as long as I can remember. Growing up, my mom rehapolstered it in a hot pink, teal and purple fabric that matched my teal bedroom walls perfectly! If I remember right, the frame was gold too…ooohhh! Since then, I have rehapolstered it 2 more times and each time looks better than the last.
I had leftover fabric from some pillows I covered recently so I just used that. I spent about $10 on the fabric and it covered 2 pillows, this chair and I still have a little left (Yes, the pillows are above in the picture).
Rehapolstering a chair seems like it could be a hard task. And yes, depending on the complexity, it can be. But something like this is really easy to re-do. The most simplistic way to complete it, is to disassemble the existing chair and carefully remove the old fabric. You can then use that old fabric as a pattern to cut out the new fabric.
Simply use a staple gun to attach it back to the wood base and back. For this type of char, the back is exposed, so I needed to cut a round circle, finish the edges and use upholstery tacks to attach it. And…DONE!
