I saw this cute chair sitting in a neighbors lawn and it was marked ‘free’. I snagged it up and decided it would be perfect for my daughters new room.
Thrifted Chair Update
After removing the seat, I cleaned the chair well to remove any dirt, dust, Or grime.
Once the chair was dry after cleaning, I gave the chair 2 coats of this enamel paint to act as a primer.
Next I gave the chair two coats of this French Cream paint.
This is the chair after the first coat.
While the chair dried I started to reupholster the seat.
(fair warning.. this is my first time doing this, so my execution isn’t the best 😂)
Using a staple gun I secured the fabric around the chair pulling it as tight as I could. I am obviously no pro, but this worked well for me.
The fabric I used is from hobby lobby and I found it in the outdoor fabrics which are heavy duty.
Finally, I placed the cushioned seat back in place and reattached it with the screws that held it in place previously.
So incredibly simple with a big impact. I am in love with this chair now! So happy with my little trash to treasure project.
