Recovered Office Chair

Added Feb 9, 2009

Cincinnati, Ohio...






I recovered my extremely old thrifted office chair using a shower curtain that matches my window curtains in my sewing room. The color of this fabric is what I based the wall color of my room on.

This was surprisingly easy to do. I really just pinned the fabric, cut around the edges, sewed it together, pasted and hand-sewed to close. For the seat I just used some elastic to help it conform, and then my handy spray adhesive :) I love it! I should have done this way sooner! Now all I have left is to paint my rocking chair white and recover the cushion. See my profile for pics of my sewing room if your interested.

    It turned out very neatly. Great fabric choice.

    Very cute! Much better than the boring colors those chairs come in. This makes me want to finish covering my chair.

    This looks great – it is inspiring me to tackle my dress-dolly that is a bit tatty and needs covering. Great job B-).
