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.
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.
