Blue and White Folding Chair Makeover

HI everyone! Hope you are all well! School is about ready to start around here, although I have a couple of more weeks before I go back. It will all be here very soon!

I have a simple project for you today. You’ve probably already seen it done on Pinterest, but it is something I have been wanting to do for awhile and kept putting it off. But I will be hosting a bridal shower for Lauren’s best friend in a couple of week, so I figured I better get going on this! I had also found some fabric I liked at a yard sale this summer, so now I had no excuse.

I had these old brown folding chairs that really needed an update. They are definitely passed their era! First I unscrewed the back and the seat from the frame of the chair.

I found this tag on the bottom of the seat. I know it says model number is 1953, but I wonder if that was the date. And the price! $10.95! What a bargain!

Once the back and the seat were removed, I took the frame outside and gave it a couple coats of white spray paint and a coat of clear coat.

I love this fabric! It’s heavier than just cotton, and the colors are so much better than the brown.

I laid the fabric on the floor, with the help of Chica, and cut out the shape, about 2 inches from the edge of the chair back. This will give me enough to wrap around and staple. I also did this for the seat.

I laid the chair back on the wrong side of the fabric and made sure it was centered. I start in the middle of each side and put in one staple, then continue around.

    Great makeover. Wonder if I can find a heavy duty stapler at a yard sale! I would find it hard to believe that those are the same chairs; they came out GREAT!

    They look fantastic! The fabric pattern & color are beautiful. I see these chairs (usually not pretty whatsoever) for next to nothing at garage/estate sales and I never think twice. Thanks for this! Pinning & Sharing 🙂
