I have been looking at this old chair in my basement for some time, it was falling apart and I almost threw it out. What? throw it out, no I knew I could make a diy project out of it.
So when I was doing my daughter’s room make over, we could not find a chair that was small enough to fit the pottery barn inspired desk I just painted ( coming up soon on my next blog) then I remembered this chairI went to work taking it apart, quite easy actually this whole thing only took me a couple of hours. I didn’t even go to the store, I used what ever I had at home.
you need a drill or screw driver to remove the seat from the base. Then remove the staples that hold the fabric, use a flat screwdriver or a staple remover tool
Here I am separating the two pieces of the sat back, using the staple remover ( very useful tool) staple the fabric while holding it tight I used some cotton fabric from another project, I was going to leave it like this, but it was too boring for me so I went looking around the house to see what else I could use.
I found this great quilt that was damaged a few years ago but I loved it so much I never got rid of it. I cut a piece and stapled it to the seat and back
I used this fabric glue to attach the quilt to the backside of the seat back Then pressed the two sides together of the seat back ( there are clips, that attach both pieces)
Then screw the seat and back together againto hide the black plastic back support? (what ever you call it ) I made a sleeve to cover it. I used some fabric protector, after all it’s going in a girls room nice Huh?
