Quick Reupholstery

I "reupholstered" an old office chair I FOUND on the street by putting on tapestry panels I got at the dollar store - I pinned on the bottom seat section with push pins and I laced the top back section on using matching yarn.


Really changes the look of this sturdy chair I got for FREE. The original was a utilitarian but muddy brown. And the tapestry panels are sturdy. You could also apply with spray glue.

Do you have a picture of this? Sounds like a great idea.

I did something similar to this on my daughter's folding toddler chair. I used pink gingham tea towels from the dollar store. It took all of 10 or 15 minutes and $2 to make her chair match her room.
