Hi there, hope you all had a nice weekend? I promised in my Chair Reveal from last Friday, that I would share my tutorial with you on how to transform an old upholstered chair.
Since this tutorial has multiple steps, I created a little gallery for you. You can find all the material I used below, with a summary of the spendings for this project. I would love to hear what you think about this tutorial!
DIY // How to Transform an Upholstered Chair
Material used for this project:
- Fabric from HomeFabrics and Rugs
- 1.5 yards of the main leaf print fabric $5/yard
- .5 yards of brown textured fabric for the back $5/yard
- 10″ inches-green linen fabric for buttons and trim $5/yard
- Total: about $15.00 incl. tax
- Decotacks Upholstery Nails/tacks 7/16″ – 100 Pcs – $6.90
- Fabric covered buttons – dark green – $10.00
- Dritz 44296 Dust Cover Upholstery Fabric, Charcoal, 36-Inch by 5-Yard (already owned) – $8.49

- Foam, batting (already owned) – $4.00
- 8 .oz Oil based Ebony Stain from Minwax (already owned) – $4.78

Since I already owned some of the items, I did not include them in my total cost. So, my spendings for material was only $35.90 plus the chair $22.00, makes this makeover a whooping $57.90.
I’d love to hear your feedback on this makeover.
