A Chair Makeover

I’m on a mission to clean and spruce up my sewing area. I even made a plan while I was in Australia. (Staying in hotels always gets me excited to clean and organize. ) Tonight my favourite guy and I recovered the first of two rolling chairs. Here’s how it started.

Pretty sad, right? But everything’s better in pink. This fabric is one I picked up at a garage sale years ago. 17 yards of upholstery fabric for $10 if I remember correctly. A little sewing, a little glue and possibly a little swearing and here it is…. pretty and ready for some sewing time!

Gizmo approves, too.

One chair down, four to go. One more rolling chair, one old sewing chair with a lift seat, one bentwood rocker and one fully upholstered platform rocker (that’s a bigger summer project. ) I’m also planning to use some of the pink to make fabric baskets. It’s a lot of pink but I think having the cohesive upholstery will really look great when it’s done. Especially after we paint!

Happy quilting!

  1. Hi Beth! Well, aren’t you just so clever?!! What a great idea, and it looks fabulous. All the chairs having matching cushions will be the ticket, and what a great deal you got on that fabric. I have some director chair pieces that I have been going to make a new back and seat for a good 20 years. I even have the fabric (somewhere – if it’s still good). You have inspired me to start looking for it at least. HAHA! Happy Friday to you. ~smile Roseanne
