Herringbone Chair Makeover

Herringbone Chair Makeover - Delicious And DIYSo for the first time in my DIY life I re-upholestered a chair and I just want to reupholster anything and everything that I lay my eyes on now !

The chair which I experimented on was basically a simple plain black chair and it was time it got a makeover.

Herringbone Chair Makeover - Delicious And DIYSince I am part of this months Fab Furniture Flippin Contest and the theme of this month is “Take A Seat”. Our wonderful sponsor is Minted who provided us with beautiful fabrics which was the perfect excuse to give this chair some color.

Minted is basically an online community where independent artists submit there content which in turn is sold in the form of art, home decor and stationary.

I just couldn’t decide on only ONE fabric since they have such a wide variety of gorgeousness hence I ended up ordering multiple fabrics or else it would have taken me forever to make a decision.

I unscrewed the bottom and back side of the chair and started the stapling process. I wrapped up the fabric and stapled away. Then I gathered the fabric again and held it tightly and stapled away and basically kept doing it again and again.

Until miraculously it was All Done. Why did I every make this such a big deal?

For the frame of the chair I decided to go with a light blue shade of paint.

Lastly I went in with my Liquid Gold Gilding and taped off some stripes with my masking tape on the legs of the chair.

After that it was just a matter of re-attaching the seat and the back side of the chair and I had a beautiful new chair.
