Step 1: Destroy Chairs

You will need to take apart your chair. Just take off cushions. Remove old fabric, old foam, and old wood. KEEP THE WOOD!!! YOU WILL NEED IT LATER!!

Step 2: Sand and Spray Paint Chairs

Sand the chairs lightly, but don't sand all of the paint off. (The spray paint we used is mixed with premier) spray with white paint and leave to dry.

Step 3: Cushions

Now that your cushions are apart, cut fabric and foam according to wood size. Foam should be same size as wood and fabrics should be approximately five inches further out on all sides. Place foam directly on wood and fabrics on top of it. Pull fabric over wood and foam (snug, but not too tight) and staple. Spray with scotch guard and screw on chairs (if the paint has dried on the chairs)

Step 4: Done!

Yay! now you are done! Any questions, feel free to comment!
