I found this chair for $14 at Goodwill. While I found it quite hideous in its original state, I saw potential. I loved the lines of the chair and thought it would be the perfect addition to my room. Here is the before:
I removed the seat part of the chair using a hammer (I’m so rugged these days). Then I spray painted the chair a glossy white.
Next, I went to the fabric store and got foam for the seat and a really cool, printed fabric. After that I went to Home Depot and got a piece of wood which I had cut to match using the old seat as the pattern.
The last step was to finish the seat. I tightly wrapped the fabric around the wood and the foam (with help) and used a staple gun to attach it. Then I trimmed the extra fabric and attached the seat back to the chair. I’m so happy with the finished product!
