Folding Chair Makeover

Have an ugly folding chair sitting in your office or home? You can change that very quickly!

First make sure you have a color and fabric picked out.

Take all the hardware off and un-staple fabric. Usually when I do a project sometimes I need my husband to help, but this was one that I did all by myself!

After you got it all taken a part, trace around pieces and leave about 1-2" all the way around with your fabric. Get your new fabric and tightly staple to back and bottom seat.

Spray paint while fabric is being stapled separately to other pieces. After the paint dries put the seat back together! It is much quicker putting it together than taking it apart!

Doesn't it look so much better?? I was really happy with how it turned out, and can't wait to update it again soon!

    Beautifully done! These are the best type of chairs to update. Easily done by yourself.

    I have the same "before" chairs. How did you remove the black screws from the bottom of the seat cushion?

    I love this idea for folding chairs! I have to redecorate some ugly old brown chairs we have so this idea will definitely work. Keep up the good work, I'm sure they're are others like me that need help! http://www.partyequipmentdepot.com/white-plastic-folding-chair.html
