I want a little reading area in my Master Bedroom...
I really want a BIG comfy chair to read stories to my son.
But right now that's not in the budget so I'm am making do with a $5 Thrift Store chair that I re painted and gave the seat some new fabric.Here is the dreadful before...............
I bought this fabric at Wal-Mart for around $6 a yard.
My plan was to make pillows for my bed but
decided to use it to recover this chair.
My Facebook friends all voted for the black fabric
so that's what I used.
Now I don't own a sewing machine....yet
And a re-upholstery project seems also impossible to me but this was surprising very easy and I only used a heavy duty stapler.
I unscrewed the arms and seat.
I gave it a good once over with the sander
and then a couple of coats of black paint.
(you can also see a glimpse of the soon to be side table and bookshelf
I will be making using concrete forms)
The seat was rotten so I just traced it on some wafer board and cut a new piece......I then just stapled my batting and fabric to the board
Probaly not the proper way but it worked and who really sees the underneath. Besides it's just a temporary chair.
My 'new' chair matches perfect with my master bedroom color scheme.
Stay tuned for the bookcase and side table:-)Check out all the places I party!
