I don’t think I’ve told you, but I’m working on vamping up my craft room. It’s in the works. But the chair is done, and I LOVE it!! I found the basic office chair at a thrift store and redid it:
WOW, right?! What a difference paint and fabric can make!! Did you know these kind of chair could come apart – I wasn’t sure, but they do.
After taking off the seats, I spraypainted everything else. It’s a plastic chair, so I was sure to use the spraypaint specially designed for plastics (I used Krylon Fusion for plastics in red). My husband was skeptical of paint sticking to plastic (he’s a plastics engineer) but it worked great!
Then I wrapped my fabric around the seat parts and stapled it to the back. I didn’t even take off the old fabric – just wrapped over it all.
Then screw it all back together and you’re done. The chair went from “drab” to “fab” (my model was begging to sit on it for a picture) – I really love it!
