Chair Redo {Tutorial}

Finally getting around to the tutorial on the chair makeover I did awhile ago. I picked up 2 matching dining room chairs at a Garage Sale & knew I wanted to change them up...
one for my craft room and the other for my piano(before and after pics of that one coming soon!)

Here is one of the original chairs with one that is vamped up with some color!:)
This makeover was SO SIMPLE!!! First I unscrewed the cushion from underneath...
then I used this as a template to cut a piece of fabric large enough to go around the cushion. My cushions were in great shape, so I just put my fabric right over the original and stapled it on, using a staple gun!
Then, I took my naked little chair outside for a coat of paint...
1 just used one can of spray primer...don't mind my dead weeds in the background;)
and a coat of paint in the color of my choice---actually if you remember...I sent my hubby to the store and this is what he came home with and I LOVE IT!
screwed the "new" cushion back on and it was done!

a new chair...
for my CRAFTIFYING space...
