Coffee Sack Chair Makeover

 Do you like this burlap coffee sack chair?

Interested in how the makeover happened?
Keep scrolling!
 It started out looking like this...




Check out the nasty stains!

To re-finish the seat I removed it from the chair. The bottom was covered with a black burlap.

 After removing black cover you see that the middle of the seat isn't supported leaving is very awkward to sit in!

After removing everything I see that there's horsehair in the chair. Being that horse hair is expensive and good quality I left it. Adding a layer of padding and supporting the middle of the seat, be adding some 1 x 6 pieces of wood - show in a later pic.

Using the old seat cover as a pattern for the new cover.

 Painting the chair in "Careless Whisper" which is one of my favorite white/off-white paint colors!
(I deny it has anything to do with it's name or the song)

Here's a view of the support I added to the seat. Also a view of the new seat cover wrapped around the seat. I used a burlap coffee sack that I got at the Houston Urban Market Antique show a few weeks ago!

Ultimate re-purposing...I saved the upholstery tacks from puling it apart to put it back together! Saving $$ Yay!

 Bottom cover stapled on!

And now the finished product!! I think the pictures speak for themselves. I love this chair so much I'm not sure if I want to sell it!!
 





 Hope you love this chair as much as I do!
 Inspired by this chair, costing only a fraction of the price!
