Decorated Fabric Chair

3 Materials
30 Minutes

I gave this chair a makeover using fabric markers, it was easy and fun to do! Check out how I did it below:

This was the chair before. This chair even though we have had for more than 20 years, it's in perfect shape. All it needed was a little cleaning before I got to work, which I did using Resolve.

I then proceeded to use a fabric marker to draw the lines. What made it easier in this particular case, was that the fabric already had a pattern which helped me follow the lines. It was fun to do!

I made a different design when I flipped the cushion just for the fun of it. So now it has a reversible cushion.

But I like it simpler so I flipped it back and added a hand-painted pillow.

And I drew more designs in a plain pillow I had in my bedroom. I can choose to use either pillow. These markers are so much fun and easy to use!!!

I hope you like my idea and give it a try yourself!

      I did not change the color or add buttons. I only drew lines, dots and designs with a fabric marker.

      I tried this years ago w/ fabric paint. The chair turned to cactus. Don't do it. My husband still mentions that recliner I ruined...
