DIY-Chair makeover no sew skirt
I hope you had a fantastic holiday. We sure did, Prince Charming took a week off and we just goofed around as a family, it was great!
I have taken a little hiatus to just breath. I said yes to way too many things in December and so I needed some time to just be still. You know how that is right?
Well I was still for a little while and then……
it was makeover time!
I redid this chair, again! It was cute but it was looking too shabby! White plus 3 year old not the best choice! You can see how this chair started out here. Next time I tell you I am painting something white remind me about this. Oh snap…. I already did when you weren’t looking but this time it wasn’t a chair.
Recovering chairs is the easiest thing to do if you can staple you can do this. I didn’t sew a single stitch on this chair.
I don’t have step by step photos of the construction because I decided this project simply had to be done, 1 day before we had 18 guests coming over. All I did was cut the main piece of fabric to be a few inches bigger than the seat and stapled it on along with the batting I had already used previously. I used a painters drop cloth for this and man do I love how durable it is!
To create the ruffled skirt I simply cut the seam section off the drop cloth and strategically stapled pleats. You can make your drop length be whatever you would like I used 6 inches. Isn’t it funny how different something looks with a little paint and a skirt!
I have a big reveal coming up but I have a few finishing touches before I can show you!
