The other day I went out to my car and a little chair caught my eye sitting in the alley.
The wheels are spinning... so much potential. A ran over and grabbed the chair and ran back to my apartment (yes, I ran).
Look at it! Great style, and easy to cover:
"Read more" to see the tutorial!
So excited. But its and ugly vinyl, and you can see the springs sticking out.
But it has such a great shape.
This is the fabric I picked out to cover the lil guy.
First I fixed the whacky springs on the bottom. I just used some wire to secure the spring back down.
Now the fun part! Tear that thing up!
Here's the naked little chair. I sacraficed and old pillow for some extra padding on the seat.
Then line up your fabric and start stapling under. I used a staple gun. I started at the front of the seat and worked around to the back, pulling and stapling the sides as I went. I must have gotten carried away because I forgot to take pictures of this part. Oops!
The back, I folded the sides around then pulled the top around from the front and stapled it underneath the bottom.
I'm SO excited about how this turned out. I love it. Its very "me" and goes with my living room really well.
Isn't it Great?!
If I were to do it again I probably would have given the arms a little sanding and varnish. But since I live in an apartment and they really weren't too bad I decided to leave them. I think it turned out fantastic and I'm really happy with it.
