I finally did it!!! I finished my chair makeover!!
I started this back in September 2011. I stopped working on it early October when I found out we were moving. Sometime in late January I started working on it again. Then I ran into a hiccup when I ran out of nailhead tacks and had friends and family all over the country searching for the ones I had purchased almost 6 months ago. (My mom found them in Pennsylvania! Yay!)
I can finally show you the whole thing! I'm thrilled to be done and I hope you like it!
Here's pictures of the before, and some of the demo.
And for the finished product...
Before & After comparison....
Here's the breakdown of the cost:
Chair - $25 (Craigslist)
Fabric - $13 - (Osnaburg fabric from Walmart)
Muslin - $5 (lining)
Paint -$0 (had a sample paint lying around)
Hammered Nailhead Tack - $4
Tacks - $2 (basic kind to secure fabric)
Foam - $5 (seat)
Batting - $3
Heat 'n Bond - $3 (to secure fabric to tufted seat back)
A chair like this at Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, or Ballard Designs be at the very least, $500! So I think my $60 knock off is a steal! So proud of myself for my first re-upholstery job!
