I have had this ugly dining room chair since we moved into our home over 10 years ago. I am a bit embarrassed to admit that I hung on to it with the intention of giving it a face lift. It took me 10 years to start it and only one hour (minus drying time) to complete it. I hate to think of all the things I could get done if I would just quit procrastinating or waiting for the perfect time.
|Start by removing the chair cushion from the frame. Then using a flat screwdriver, pry up the old staples in order to remove the ugly, faded fabric.|
|Here are the components of the chair seat: sturdy board base, layer of cushion, fabric. Replace any of these as seen fit. All of mine were in good condition.|
|Beautiful piece of gray fur I had hanging around. Because who doesn't have a random piece of gray fur?|
|Lay cushion in center of fabric. Lay chair board on top of cushion.|
|Paint chair frame. Let dry.|
|Finished seat cushion. (Well, almost finished. I went back and fixed that little bulge in the front. Blasted thing.)|
|Secure seat back onto chair frame.|
