Introduction: Garbage to Gorgeous Chair Makeover
It makes me crazy when I see perfectly good stuff in the trash! This time, I picked up a chair that had been tossed to the curb. Some of the joints were loose, so my husband added some screws and glue and it's nice and sturdy. It was a little uneven, but that was easily fixed with a stick on scratch pad. Now, it's cute as can be and a great accent chair!
You will need:
- Chalk paint - I found it at Home Depot
- Fabric - I used fabric from Hobby Lobby
- Quilt batting
- Staple gun
Step 1: Clean Your Chair and Remove Cushion, Fabric and Foam.
Step 2: With Sandpaper, Sand the Chair, So the Paint Will Adhere.
Step 3: With a Damp Cloth, Wipe the Dust Off the Whole Chair.
Step 4: Paint the Chair With the Chalk Paint, It Will Take Two Coats.
Step 5: Cut the Foam, Fabric and Quilt Batting to Fit the Chair.
Step 6: I Like to Do the Corners First. I Show the Technique I Use in the Video Above.
Step 7: Then I Do the Sides.
Step 8: Once the Paint Is Dry and the Cushion Is Recovered, Put the Cushion Back On. Remember, When You Remove the Screws From the Chair, Put Them in a Safe Place, So You Have Them When It Comes Time to Reattach It.
That's it! This chair was a piece of garbage that would have ended up in a landfill and instead, it's a fabulous accent chair! Yay!
