I found this disgusting beauty on the curb a couple of years ago. Since then, it has been taking up residence in my garage. I liked the shape and the promise it held, but it’s time had come. Bloom or face your doom!
It was a 10+ on the gross meter. It was filthy and the cushion was crumbling and disintegrating before my eyes!
For the project, you will need:
- A crappy chair
- Black gloss spray paint
- Foam to replace current cushion
- Quilt batting
- Staple gun
- Fabric - I used a duck cloth because it is pretty durable
Here is the video tutorial where I show you how I did it! It's quick:
Step 1: Take it apart. Remove the cushion and the musty, grungy, nasty cushion and get rid of it!!
Step 2: Clean it. I first brushed it off. Then I used some elbow grease, soap and water and left it to dry.
Step 3: Paint it. I used a spray paint that has a primer built in and would adhere to all surfaces. It took about a can and a half for good coverage. Let it dry.
Step 4: While drying, you can start working on the cushion. Find a pretty fabric. I used a duck cloth fabric because it is pretty durable. Cut out the foam for the cushion and I like to put a layer of quilt batting over it, which helps smooth the edges.
Step 5: Face down, on a clean surface, place your fabric. Your quilt batting, your foam piece and the seat base. Trim around, but not too close. You can always cut off the excess later.
Step 6: Start to staple. I started at the corners, going opposite to opposite and then the middle to the middle. Then I followed along all the edges.
Step 7: Cut away the excess.
Step 8: Reattach to the chair.
That’s it! It doesn’t stink. It isn’t nasty and I think it makes a beautiful accent chair!
