Last spring, I found these chairs in our neighborhood. They were beat up and had definitely seen better days. Lucky for me, their former owners were over them and I was able to snatch them up. I didn't remember to take a before photo of both chairs, so here's a pic with one finished and the other one in all of its beat up glory.
Recovering a chair seat is one of the simplest projects out there. I bought about a yard of fabric in this bright teal geometric print. I laid the fabric face down on the floor and then placed the cushion on top of it. I used the same method as I did when I covered the cushion for the ottoman and put one staple on each side and then worked my way around. Even the corners on a seat cushion are pretty easy. Just fold the fabric over and staple it down.
There isn't too much I love about our mudroom, other than these chairs. There's reclaimed wood on the walls that's ok. It makes the space pretty dark, but does give it a little character. I do enjoy the hooks so we have a place to hang up our coats. I also can't wait to replace the tile in there. That's on the "to do if we win a bunch of money" list!
Since I only had to pay for the fabric and spray paint, this makeover came in at about $20. Pretty good if I do say so myself!
Does your town have a junk pick-up week like this throughout the year? Its amazing to see what some people put out on the curb. Have you fixed up anything that was someone elses trash? It's pretty gratifying to make some pretty and useful again. Does anyone else have a "to do if I win a bunch of money" list? It can't just be us!
