Before and After Pictures
My Thrift Store Find
Exactly what I did:
- First I washed the pillow and laid it out in the sun for the day.
- The chair was sanded and spray painted glossy black. Since this chair swivels, I sprayed some lubricant on the movable parts.
- The chair pad was then re-covered.
I purchased a few yards of fabric (used my 50% coupon) and paid less than $15.00 for the 2 yards. I pinned the fabric around the pillow, right sides together. From there I cut away the excess fabric. When I was pretty sure that it would be a good fit, I pulled out the pillow. I sewed up around the edges, pulled it right side out and hand sewed the opening.Total cost for completed chair:
About $28.00. For this money, I think I got a great chair.
