My In-Laws gave us tons of their furniture in attempts to downsize their current home. I have to say some of the pieces were super drab and outdated. It took me a while and a lot of inspiration but I think that this chair transformation really works!
This Bamboo chair in it’s original state was damaged. A piece of the bamboo is missing on the back and the wicker seating is completely gone. My MIL attempted to recover a piece of wood for the chair seat and she did pretty well. Except for one thing, the staples she used were too long, so every time you sat in the chair you literally had a pain in the butt. A Re-Do had to happen but first I was in need of inspiration. Look below at the pictures which inspired me and follow the links to discover some great sites.
This was a pretty simple DIY makeover. I simply spray painted the chair gold with spray paint. Then I removed the old fabric and pokey staples and recovered the seat with this gorgeous HGTV fabric that was gifted to me by Becki at Infarrantly Creative and trimmed it out with bias tape. You will see more of this fabric later and here the rest of the story.
I am loving this chair! The first “new” piece for our Playroom and office makeover. Keep your eye out for these chairs at thrift stores. They are solid, comfortable, and really snazzy once made over.
