Thrifted Sewing Chair Make-Over

Hello & Welcome Back! Can we just talk about this chair make-over for a minute??? I mean…I just love the finished project!! I have my great, great grandmother’s Singer sewing machine that I made over a few years ago when I first received it. I didn’t have a chair to go with it and have been searching for the perfect piece…I finally found it!

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know how much I love thrifting!! I cam across this chair at the Goodwill and although the seat was hideous, the bones were great! At only $9.99, I knew I had to have it.

I started by removing the legs & seat cover, then I gave the frame a good cleaning with soap & water. After it was completely dry, I added a coat of white chalk paint & a matte sealer to help keep scuffs & nicks away. I had this gorgeous 1 yard cut of material stashed away in my cabinet that I thought would be so perfect.

I cut away the dirty fabric & since my cushion was in good shape still, all I had to do was wrap my material around and staple it down. See the final piece below. Such a transformation!

I hope you love this piece as much as I do! Don’t be scared to shop the thrift stores, you just might find exactly what you’re looking for.

Thanks for stopping by,
