Did you know you can change the whole look of a dining chair just by replacing the fabric?
HOW TO MAKE A $10 CHAIR LOOK LIKE A MILLION BUCKS
The chair is from my favorite junk shop and I paid $10 for it. I started this project thinking I would use watercolor paints on a drop cloth and cover the seat with the drop cloth. Things went totally sideways.
The first thing I did was turn the chair upside down in order to remove the padded seat. I used a screwdriver to remove the four screws on the bottom side of the chair seat, one on each corner.
This is where the project took a turn. I walked by one of the many junked-up areas in the shop and caught a glimpse of this fabric. I bought it at the junk shop too.
I decided not to paint the drop cloth and to use the pretty fabric instead. I mean, look at those colors. I love the various shades of blue and turquoise and green.
After ironing the fabric I laid the chair seat upside down on the fabric and cut a piece big enough to staple onto the seat.
