I do believe that almost anything can be transformed from “blah” to “pretty”.
Including these ugly folding chairs.
All you need is some nice fabric and spray paint….
The most difficult part was removing the screws that held down the seat cushions and back rests. The chairs were quite old, so the screws were worn out. I had to cut them off which was quite a task. Yes, there were some words flying around. What you expect to be the easiest project always has some glitch in it, so it seems. Ha!
Once the screws were removed, it was quite easy to remove the old fabric… all I had to do is remove the million and one staples. I used the original fabric as my template to cut out the new fabric covers. Then I stapled on the new fabric with a million and one staples. ;)
I spray painted the chairs using Krylon’s almond (it has become my favorite go to neutral color). No need to properly spray paint the areas that the seat cushion and back rest will be covering.
Now at this point, I didn’t feel like making a run to Home Depot for new screws… instead I opted to use E6000 glue to adhere the seat cushion and back rest. That glue is truly my hero… always coming through for me! It works wonders folks! You wouldn’t believe what I have used this glue for… and still holding up beautifully!
(Note: Of course, if your screws are reusable do go that route.)
Chairs are all done. Don’t they look so much nicer?
These are for my sister-in-law, so I sure hope she liked the makeover.
