Remember the awesome job I did on transforming the cupboard? The same place I found this chair – another free item I must add. This is also quite an old project, and I have sold this chair as well when we moved.
My original thought with this piece was to paint it and re-upholster it, but that turned out to me harder than I imagined so I created a new cushion with some pink fabric I bought and stuffing from a pillow.
Here is the before picture – lots of potential!
The cushion was loose so I just took it off and primed the chair.
Then I painted it two coats of pink. I used the same colour as my sewing cart. Such a pretty colour.
This is the pillow that I sewed to fit. I did not do any specific measurements – I just kinda winged it. I might have needed to stuff the back pillow a bit more, but I had some small pillows I added so that was not really a problem for me.
I have always loved having a comfy chair in my room, in which I can sit back, relax and read a good book. Unfortunately it usually end up being filled with clothes that are used but not dirty enough to be washed (jeans, jumpers etc).
