I had this chair lying around in disrepair. The loose seat needed screws, and the cushion wore a tragic 80′s country colonial hell fabric.
Still solid and sturdy, this chair just needed a new sexy outfit. Unscrew the seat and remove. Gather a substantial stapler, staples, and scissors. “Know your colors and know your fabrics. That’s what I tell all my little girls.” Cut your fabric with enough extra to staple, but not so much it covers the screw holes. Staple that bitch. Screw her back together. Flip her right side up and admire the transformation.
Dark, rich, printed fabrics are more forgiving for slobs like me. I purchased 3/4 of a yard and had quite a bit left over intentionally. Buy enough that you can arrange the print on the cushion as you like it.
A vast improvement, no? I love to restore beauty.
