On the day I chose to hit garage sales last week, I found these chairs at my last stop and had just enough money left to purchase two of them. For $5.00 each, I knew I could fix these up to sell in my booth and I wouldn’t even have to paint them!
They were already black but a little dirty and the fabric had seen better days.
I took the seat off and removed all the fabric and batting so I could start from scratch. I also wiped the chairs themselves down very well with Chlorox wipes.
One of the chairs had 7 ~ yes, 7 ~ layers of fabric stapled to it! I’m not above stapling new fabric over old chairs myself, but seriously, after two layers you gotta remove at least one!
I decided to use some fabric I bought recently from Décor Steals ~ the grain sack fabric they have available every so often. I had splurged and bought three colors and, of the three, decided the tan and black stripe would suit these chairs best.
After adding some new batting, I stapled the fabric to the seats and then reattached them to the chair.
A great way to get a new look, just by changing out the fabric!
This is the first project I’ve used this fabric on and I really like it. I’m thinking some pillows and Christmas stockings with it next.
