makeover my sad little chair
My goal for yesterday was to makeover my sad little chair that I bought last Saturday and turn it into a beautiful accent chair for my bedroom. I already had the paint, primer, and fabric, I just needed the motivation to get going.

  • How to make a chair. Pretty In Pink Chair Makeover - Step 1
    Step 1

    This was a fairly easy project. I just had to rip off one layer of old fabric, which I did with a flat head and a hammer. At first, I tried with only the flat head and ended up stabbing the inside of my hand, fun stuff. But once I got going with the hammer, it was easy peasy!

    After that I wrapped an extra layer of fluff to give it a little more cushion and then stapled my beautiful pink damask fabric in place.
