I spent the weekend working on my craft closet. It's taking a while to go through all of the closets where I have stuff stashed and organize it all in my new space. Hopefully I will be sharing it with you in the next few days. I needed a chair for the space, so I went up in the attic and brought down a chair which has gone through many makeovers in the past.
Here is it's latest transformation.
This chair was in my daughter's room a few years ago. I probably could have left it white with the pink fabric, but I really wanted something more fun for my new craft space.
When I saw this awesome fabric, I was inspired to spray the chair turquoise. Unfortunately it's still cold here, but patience is not one of my virtues, so I went outside and spray painted it quickly. Then I carefully brought it inside to dry. I figured even though it was under 40 degrees outside, it was warm inside and hopefully it would all work out.
Here's some tips when covering a chair seat. First, if you are using a large scale pattern like I have, be sure to decide which part of the pattern you would like for your seat. In my case I decided to focus on the paisley section with the flower in the center.
I start on one side and then work my way to the corners.
I fold the corners into thirds and staple as I go.
After I finish off the bottom I cut off the excess fabric.
This chair is going to look so good in my new craft closet.
Here's a reminder of what the craft closet looks like so far.
Can't wait to share the finished closet!
What do you think of my fun, funky turquoise chair?
