Chair make-over with a llama theme

Chica and I found a pair of charming, old arm chairs for $5 each at our local thrift shop. We each took one and decided to do a make-over and see how different each chair turned out. Today, I am showing you my version, which involves a lot of bright colors!

I first wiped down the chair really well to get all the built-up grime off of it. Then I took off the old seat so I could cover it with some adorable llama fabric that I found at Hobby Lobby.

Usually, I would remove the old fabric first, but in this instance, I didn’t. The seat was still quite cushy and I was afraid the pad would fall apart if I took the original fabric off, so I decided to just add new fabric over it. I stapled the fabric on, starting at the middle of each side. As I went, I made sure my little llamas on the front didn’t get warped or uneven. I found the fabric at Hobby Lobby.

Next up, I sprayed the chair with some Chalky Finish paint using my HomeRight Sprayer. Have I mentioned before how much I love this thing?

Just look what a difference this bright color and fun fabric made!

As a finishing touch, I added a bit of orange paint to the inside of the triangle.

    Hello- Love the chair! Can you tell me where the llama fabric and the little picture came from? My daughter in law is Peruvian and I’d love to make some accents for her! Thank You!

    Julie, the fabric came from Hobby Lobby and I found the picture through a Google search!
