Amazing Chair Reupholstry! From Old-looking to Brand-New!

06 October 2011

Amazing Chair Reupholstry! From Old-Looking to Brand-New!

This project rates... out of anything I've ever done.... as the one I disliked the MOST while I was doing it!
BUT, this project also rates as the one I enjoy the MOST.... out of anything I've ever done.... EVERY SINGLE DAY!

Would you believe that I turned these:

Into these?!

I'm proud to say that the project only cost me about $20 total!  The pair of chairs was free, and I re-used the padding, the cording.... even the upholstery nails.  This project was done on a dime and completely upcycled.  Yay!!!!

I sure learned a lot!  But it will be a while before I tackle this kind of re-upholstery again. Just bein' honest. ;)

They look better in the day time... maybe I'll have to add some daytime photos....  :)

Here are a few process pictures - I was going to do a full-blown tutorial, but I'm sure there are good ones already out there somewhere AND I'm sure there are easier ways to do most of what I "figured out."  But for what it's worth:

This project was contributed by one of our fabulous readers! We love to share your projects with this great blogging community. So, if you have projects from kitchen renovation ideas to small bathroom remodels, overhauled and repurposed furniture, spray paint updates you name it please send it in!

What a beautiful reupholstering project! Check out some more awesome chairs!

I'm trying to leave a comment on the site who submitted but I can't find the above project on her site? The linkback doesn't work? Am I missing something? Thanks :)

I love the chairs. I actually just did a similar style chair in a print as well: banclothing.blogspot.com. Although the chairs look fantastic the covered table with the baskets on top is a total buzz kill.

Kudos! This is not an easy first project, but the end result is lovely.

Fantastic! Loving the fabric choice, I just finished taking upholstery classes, it's very satisfying to complete a project the right way, less frustration too. Stop by for a blog visit.

Your chairs turned out beautiful!
I hadn't thought of reupholstering some chairs!! For months now, I've had my eye on a pair from Big Lots but they cost 229.00 EACH!! I still can't bring myself to spend that much! None of my furniture cost that much!! :) I'm always scouring the local thrift store for great pieces to add to my home decor! Now I'm on a mission....! Thanks for the great idea!
