Reupholstering a Thrift Store Chair

Save It Don't Ditch It!

Here's a post from CasaSugar Community member h2urHome from the Su Casa group:

One of the first things I purchased when my husband and I bought our new house last Spring was a steal of a deal at the Salvation Army.  Here's a picture of our comfy but oh so ugly chair!

I didn't do anything with the chair for awhile because I wasn't quite sure how I was going to decorate the living room. It's months later and truth be told I still don't have an idea of what to do with the living room but I was tired of looking at the ugly chair.  I decided to have the chair recovered in a white cotton duck fabric.  It's a safe bet — the chair can be changed with a different throw or pillow.

Keep reading for the after!

Another great reason to save a chair is it's usually cheaper to have it redone than buy new, and if you get a professional to do it, I guarantee the chair will be better quality!


So the next time you are out looking for new furniture think to yourself: Can I save something I already have? If you like to see more of my furniture, please feel free to stop by House To Your Home!

Have you been doing any before and after projects lately? Be sure to share your photos with the Su Casa group!

For some reason I thought it would cost a lot more to redo a chair. I might look into having my fav big ole chair redone!!

Thanks guys! The chair cost about $480.00, that was for the chair, fabric and to have it redone. Hope this helps! The side table is from good ol' Target!
