Garage Sale Find: Antique Chair Reupholster
I realize that there are some really good buys at garage sales and some people don’t even realize the worth of some of the things they own and are willing to sell it for a couple of bucks. Now that I’ve “discovered” garage sales I’ve found some really great pieces. I purchased a set of chairs for only $10 and refinished them! It was a lot easier than I thought it would be and I want to share my find with you all.
The chair was sanded down and stained a deep brown. You can see the difference between the old and new colors. The old is on the left and the new on the right.
I measured the length and width of the back of the chair and added 2” inches to each measurement. I cut out a piece of upholstery fabric according to the measurements. The measurements allowed the fabric to overlap the sides. I used upholstery staples to attach the fabric to the back of the chair.
