Refurbishing Goodwill Patio Chairs

I found 2 chairs at Goodwill that will fit with my outdoor deck for extra seating, with little cost. Goodwill had a sale and I got both chairs for under $5. With some outdoor fabric and paints, I transformed them!

Total Time: 3 hours

Yield: 2



  1. Remove the seat cushions by removing the screws from the bottom of the chairs. Sand any rough paint spots as needed.
  2. After removing the cushions, I spray painted the chairs using black Rustoleum paint.

  4. Now to the cushions, the fabric was not in the best shape or color. Place your outdoor fabric right side down. Using the cushion as a template cut a piece of fabric 3 inches wider on all sides.
  5. Place cushion face side down in the center of fabric.
  6. With your staple gun start from the center of your fabric pulling tight. Put at least 1 staple in the center of all 4 corners of your chair. Finish by stapling around the rest of your cushion with your staple gun. Repeat with second chair.

  8. Reattach seat.
  9. I decide to add a stenciled decoration to the center of the chair seat. Optional.
  10. As extra protection, I used a silicone water-guard (optional).

What type of stapling gun did you use?

I have found that refurbished things like this usually give the

"maker" a good feeling every-time we see them.

Still quite a bit of work but what a nice job!!

Hope you and your family enjoys them for a long time.
