DIY Side Chair Reupholstery Before and After

Before and After: A Cooler Than Thou Side Chair Makeover

Upholstery is one skill I have yet to master, or even attempt on anything more difficult than a dining chair, so I'm always seriously impressed to see beginners tackling it beautifully on their own. Surfing through the LivingEtc forums, I found this vintage velvet chair in seriously dilapidated form. One reader took up upholstery as a new hobby and made it over into an eye-catching, crave worthy, modern accent chair. Want to see the chair in its finished form? Then continue reading!


Can you say gorgeous? Not only does the upholstery look absolutely professional, but I love the choice of gray piping and painted chair legs! Plus, that dandelion fabric is to die for! Quite inspiring, don't you agree?

holy crap, the new chair is BEAUTIFUL. and to believe it came from that old piece of junk, it makes it even more stunning. but seriously it does look like something from a catalog. it doesn't look like a reupholstered chair at all!

I can't even believe that's the same chair. Looks like something out of a catalog!

Huge improvement! I love the results. This is a case of someone seeing the potential in a pretty ugly chair.
