I am a sucker for secondhand chairs. Especially when it’s got some character, with room to add my own touch. I found this beauty at the thrift store last week for $7. And although it started off with a dated mauve cushion, I couldn’t reset the wicker back. I wanted to keep things green with the cushion, so I grabbed a pair of colorful pants to give it a new seat. If you’re looking to reupholster a chair, this is a great idea!
- Chair with removable cushion
- Colorful pants
- Box cutter
- Staple gun
- Sewing machine & scissors
Steps 1 & 2: Flip the chair over and remove the cushion, saving screws for later. Use the box cutter to cut the old fabric from the bottom of cushion.
Step 6: Place the cushion back on the chair frame and screw together!
Now you have a fun and quirky, eco-friendly addition for your home!
