Teacher Chair Makeover!

Do you have a boring grey office chair in your classroom or home office?  Wanna change it up?  I found this cute idea on Pinterest!


All you need is some fabric, and a staple gun!  I had 2 ugly grey office chairs and refinished both of them in about an hour!  For the seat of the chairs, I put my fabric down on the seat and cut about 8 inches larger than I needed so I could wrap it around the bottom.  Then I flipped the chair over and started using the staple gun to secure it right on top of the ugly grey fabric.  For the backs of the chairs I sewed two pieces of fabric like a pillow case and added ribbons so that I could tie them to fit.  The link above gives a nice detail explanation if you want more info before you take out your scissors and staple gun!  A friend of mine refinished hers by using a zebra patterned pillow case and it was even quicker and she didn't have to sew anything!  She bought a pair pillow cases at Walmart for $10 and cut one up to staple onto the seat of her chair and she slipped the other one over the back, and she was done! 

Goodbye boring chairs!!

Don't you just love pinterest? So many cute ideas, so little time...

Happy Friday everyone!!

  1. Your chair makeovers are great. I recovered some of mine a few months age and it was so much fun! I even found the material on a 50% off sale- what a deal!
