This chair definitely got used over the years. The seat cushion was completely flat and the armrests were worn, but other than that, this chair was in great shape.
DIY No Sew Upholstered Chair Makeover
I'm so excited to show you guys how to bring life back to an old, tired chair. We've had this chair for many years and if you have a teenager, you might recognize it. It's the thinking chair from Blue's Clues. My oldest son loved that show and I've hung on to this chair for sentimental reasons.
I picked out some fabric and chunky chenille yarn for this makeover.
I started by placing a piece of fabric over a section of the chair to make sure the fabric fit. Then I used my hot glue gun and glued the fabric to the chair along the seams of the chair. I used the Gorilla Hot Glue Sticks because they are heavy duty, durable and super strong.
When a section was covered, I would trim the extra fabric and move on to another section.
The seat of this chair was completely flat. I pulled the seat fabric up and cut along the side. The foam that came with the chair was completely pressed down to the wood. I cut my foam to fit in the chair and placed it inside the couch cushion cover.
I ran out of the flower fabric, so I used some pink fabric for the arms of the chair. The padding on the arms were worn down, so I added foam before covering with new fabric.
With the chair covered in new fabric, it was time to add the chenille yarn. I glued the yarn to the edges of the chair. Make sure you press the yarn into the glue so it’s secure. The yarn pulls the look of the chair together and really takes it to another level.
I have used this same method on two other chairs in my home and they have held up great.
