Now that we are back on track, lets get back to this crafting thing.
A while back I gave my sister's house a makeover.
I am posting this to show you how I re-upholstered a chair that she already had. I have always been a fan of the chair (it looked vintage but in style). I was just not a fan of the colors or the fabric that was on it.
This was the original look
After ripping off all the piping, then I removed the seat to the chair.
It was just a few screws. Nothing to hard.
I wanted to change the color of the wood to an off white. I am a huge fan of spray paint
(so easy to make yucky things pretty again)
Below is the spray paint that I used however, after doing many other projects I have come to know and love a different kind of spray paint.
I used this because I had it on hand.
It really is the best I have found.
I didn't trust myself to pre-cut the fabric due to bends and puckers that happen in the fabric when it is placed on the chair, so I decided to staple the fabric on 1st and then I went over it with an exacto knife. (just make sure your exacto knife is sharp otherwise you will have large frayed pieces that are very annoying to work with)As you can see below.... ANNOYING!!
