DIY Thrift Chair Upholstery Makeover | $3.00

I picked up this chair from Goodwill on blue tag day so what was 5.99 ended up being 2.99. I used all the materials and tools that I owned to "unprofessionally" upholster this chair to fit the decor of my bedroom. Use this as a tip and a guide to revamp a furniture in your home or to learn what goes into remodeling and upholstering furniture! Hope you enjoy! XoXo

I took up the whole chair and painted it white with Rustoleum Chalk paint.
I re-frabric the chair using material I had at home and stuck with my white theme.

Suggested materials:

  • Staple gun  (Home Depot)
  • Fabric & Batting  (Joann / Thrift Store)

    Thank you! I have chalk painted a lot of furniture, but just bought 2 old chairs that also need re-upholstered, which I have never attempted. After watching your video I am much more comfortable tackling this.
