Project Day : $7.50 Chairs Recovered



Picked up these chairs from Ebay recently. $15 the pair. And although the style was perfect, the fabric on the seats was not. Having a mix of kids and dogs around the table frequently it was time to recover them in something more "practical".
Here's what happened:
  • Seats were removed by unscrewing joins underneath.
  • Oilcloth was the decided fabric choice for the recover. Yes, just wipe it down with a damp cloth when the spaghetti sauce falls down on it.
  • Seat bases were laid down on top of the fabric and 2 pieces were cut. Leaving enough room around all the edges for the recover.
  • Using a staple gun pull the sides up and staple securely all around. Use good tension.
  • Re attach the seat bases.
The laminated oilcloth used was French Eden in Pink
This pattern also comes in Blue and Red.

  6. Oh too funny. I looked at the first image and thought it was the finished chairs "interesting choice of fabric, not what I would've picked". Luckily I scrolled down and saw the fabulous pink you recovered them in! LOVE it!!

  8. What a fantastic makeover! I love that oilcloth, it's gorgeous in pink and now those chairs are practical and gorgeous! I did some little stools in the black and white version of this fabric and they have been so durable with the kids! I am thinking I need some more fabric in other colours! Happy weekend! X
