Revamped Vintage Chair

Fabric Design: Inky Floral - French Blue

I have been wanting a cute and comfy study chair for absolutely ages ... so I decided to remodel an old timber dining chair that had seen better days.

.... Using the chairs original, worn out fabric as a template and leaving the existing padding in place helped to make this (my first ever) attempt at reupholstery so much easier than I thought it would be - YAY !!!

For more fabulous Chair makeovers, see the Chair Party being hosted on the Drab to Fab blog 
... Oh the possibilities :)


  1. oh my goodness, that shair is FANTASTIC now!

  2. It really looks super smart! I love the colour :)

  3. This is an absolutely stunning transformation. Excellent and beautiful fabric.

  4. Good on you for having a go Kris! It looks excellent. Have you got the upholsterer bug like I got??? You'll know if you start spying out old chairs in your spare time haha.

  5. This is gorgeous! You sure it's your first time? Great job.
