Red Chair Makeover

I have been fixing up a crafty area in my house for awhile now. I decided I needed to refinish a chair that I could set things on sit in when I craft.

I found this old chair at a Salvation Army.

I removed the cushion and sanded the chair.

I wanted to paint it a glossy red color.

I put a couple coats on it...

While that was drying, I ripped off the old cushion.

I traced it on the new (recycled) foam I was going to use. (My mom helped me, thanks Mom!)

Here are all the layers.

Time to staple everything together.

Trim it up.

Staple on the fabric.

Trim it up again.

Put it all back together.


A lovely place to sit.

  24. The chair looks great! I used that same color on a frame and I was amazed how transparent the paint was. I think I had to use about 5-6 coats! Wondering if you had the same issue or if I had bad paint.

    Thanks for sharing.
