Trash to Treasure-saved From the Landfill

2 Materials
4 Hours

I found a chair at a curb, it was ugly brown with a country blue seat, but I had a vision for this chair📌 So I gave it a new look! I sprayed it black, add new foam seat cushion left over from another project and added new fabric on the seat and total cost under $9 dollars and used for desk chair and of I just finished the desk project too. The only tools needed fir the project are spray paint, drop cloth, electric screw driver, fabric and a stable gun.
Found like this in brown wood tone and blue uguy fabric
Took off the seat and it’s ready for paint
All tools needed for this ez project
After the paint dry, and I used fast drying spray paint and dprayed 3- light coats to prevent drips and this gives even coverage. I stapled the fabric onto the seat, then screwed the seat bottom in place and project completed .
Matches the fabric in comferter set
This photo is the fabric of the comforter set in this spare room the desk is in.
