The Homemade Roost is getting a Makeover

My New re-upholstered Chair

So I’ve attempted upholstery before on some kitchen chairs and when I was done I promptly gave them away cuz’ I hated them. But I found this chair at the good ol’ DI and I loved the legs–Look at those sexy legs 🙂 and it didn’t look like it would take to much to reupholster. .

So off we went to find fabric, it only took two weeks- shopping with two kids is impossible, and I didn’t know what I wanted, I was originally going to go with something neutral, but finding the right neutral color is so freakin hard. So after seeing Camille’s chair, (which is so cute with the red polka dots) I decided I wanted something fun. So here’s my chair I painted it one evening and upholstered it the next so it wasn’t too hard or time consuming, and I lllliiiiiike it and with the extra fabric I made a pillow for our bed too 🙂

    I can’t believe you made that chair. I want one! It’s beautiful. How did you get it to look so clean and professional? Whenever I make stuff, everyone can tell I made it! This looks like a $200 chair you’d find at zgallerie or something. Amazing!ReplyCancel

    Where did you get the fabric and do you have any photos of your process? I would like to know, like previous readers, how you pulled the fabric so perfectly without it puckering or sagging…especially on a concave back! Nicely done. Now shopping craigs list to find a chair with sexy legs 🙂ReplyCancel
