Folding Chair Makeover

From the blogger: "Transform old, unattractive folding chairs to match each season, party theme, or home decor. Take the drab to fab by removing the padded seat, painting the chair, recovering and reapplying the seat. Try this step-by-step tutorial on how to upholster chairs with some fabric and paint. Use hot glue instead of staples to guarantee your guests don't get poked when seated. It couldn't be easier. No sewing required for this craft; so, this is a great afternoon project. Make multiple seat pads to switch for each event. Your chairs have never looked better!"

Materials List

  • Scissors
  • Screwdriver
  • Old Folding Chair/s
  • Spray Paint
  • Hot Glue
  • Painter's Tape
  • 1/2 Yard fabric

Instructions

  1. Remove covered/padded areas

  2. Save Screws

  3. Spray paint chair from one angle

  4. While paint dries, wrap the seat with new fabric. Hot glue in place

  5. Spray chair from a second angle

  6. Reapply seat to chair

This project went together much faster than I anticipated. The longest part of the whole process is waiting for the paint to dry. It is a great face-lift to a boring, standard chair. Give it a try!
