Basic Office Chair Reupholstered For Craft Room

12 September 2010

Mandy at Sugar Bee found a basic office chair and reupholstered for her new craft room.  See how nice it turned out.

I don't think I've told you, but I'm working on vamping up my craft room.  It's in the works.  But the chair is done, and I LOVE it!!  I found the basic office chair at a thrift store and redid it:

WOW, right?!  What a difference paint and fabric can make!!  Did you know these kind of chair could come apart - I wasn't sure, but they do.

After taking off the seats, I spraypainted everything else.  It's a plastic chair, so I was sure to use the spraypaint specially designed for plastics (I used Krylon Fusion for plastics in red).  My husband was skeptical of paint sticking to plastic (he's a plastics engineer) but it worked great!

Then I wrapped my fabric around the seat parts and stapled it to the back.  I didn't even take off the old fabric - just wrapped over it all.
Then screw it all back together and you're done.  The chair went from "drab" to "fab" (my model was begging to sit on it for a picture) - I really love it!  

Isn't that fun reupholstered chair for her craft room?  It's great to be able to put our own style and flavor on thing to make us feel good.

It's absolutely adorable!! I totally love it. I've seen those kinds of chairs reupholstered before but the fact that she painted it red is just the cherry on top!

I LOVE this chair!! Would have never thought to do something like this.

Perfect timing! I need to redo a chair like this for my daughter's room. Now I know how.

I llove this. I always steer away from getting an office chair for my computer desk in the kitchen, bc I don't want an ugly black chair with wheels ruining my decor... now I know, spray paint and fabric. I'm heading out to look for a chiar now. thanks!

I absolutely love this redo! I was just looking at office chairs today since the one in my son's room is hideous - I'm so inspired to revamp it! Thanks for sharing.

Woohoo! I found you via Rosie's Fabric Shopper blog. Like I told her, I saved my office chair from Dumpster Oblivion when we moved in hopes of recovering it in cute fabric. I thought I'd be relying on my own wits. Thank you thank you thank you for sharing your cute inspiration and awesome wisdom.
