The first thing I did was unscrew the seat from the chair. I then unpicked the staples that was holding the existing fabric and foam onto the base. I just used a flathead screwdriver & pliers for that, I’m sure there’s probably easier ways but it didn’t take me long.
Easy Chair Makeover
I bought a cute little chair off Marketplace, but the cushion & fabric was old & dirty and not the colour or style that I liked, so I gave it a makeover that was so simple & easy it took me less than 15 minutes!
Next, I threw out the old foam and fabric, it was gross!
I then wiped down the wooden seat base and put some tape over the edges. - This is an optional step, I just did it as the wood was a little rough and I wanted to prevent it from rubbing against and possible damaging the new cover.
Next I searched for a round cushion I liked, roughly the same size as the seat base, but not smaller! I already had a few in my daughters room on her bed so I used one of them.
Note: I also found plenty online and in multiple stores that were all roughly the same size, so there are plenty of options for other colours & styles.
Next, I cut a circular opening in the back of the cushion, but left the cutout attached as it was holding the decorative button in the middle in place.
I then slid the wooden seat base into the cushion (making sure the screw was in it pointing out), and wrapped the sides back over the base.
I then put some weights onto the middle of the base just to push it down and keep it all tight while I used a staple gun to attached it to the base. You could use your hand to push it down too, I just found this easier.
I didn’t get a photo of the staples 🤦🏼♀️ so I’ve roughly marked in red on the below pic where I put them.
Once the cushion was stapled on, I screwed it back onto the chair and it was done! Easy!
