And another product of boredom kicked in me! And yes, another make over!
I have these four folding chairs sitting in our garage for a month now I guess. These came with the patio furniture our friend gave to us. My husband asked me to check which one we can salvage and dump the rest in the garbage but I said to myself, all of them are still usefull so I kept them all and did a “Spring” make over.
I thought I should share this idea so here I am showing you how I did the make over…
First I detached the rusty and rotten seat, watch out for the rusty screws attached to the chair, you don’t wanna get yourself some deadly tetanus.
After making sure it’s clean, Time to paint it! I wanted to use yellow but my husband wouldn’t like it colorful so…
…I chose a different colorful part of the chair…
This is the hard part. Upholstery. It’s not just covering up the old one, I totally made a new seat for this.
Materials for the seat:
cardboard/flywood (use a thin flywood if you have)
foam (I used the foam I have available)
Fabric of your own choosing
Double Polished Clear Vinyl (or just single polished, depends on what you like)
Staple gun with staples
Step 1. Cut the cardboard/flywood for the chair
Step 2. Glue or staple the foam onto the cardboard
Step 3. Fold fabric over the foam and cardboard, pull it tight but not so tight then staple
Step 4. (optional) wrap it with the double polished crystal vinyl the same way like you did with the fabric.
And there goes my Floral Folding Chair that I can temporarily use in our porch while enjoying the view of the tulips in our lawn.
