Chair Makeover with Premier Prints

 *This is a sponsored post written by Hearts & Sharts on behalf of  the Online Fabric Store in exchange for free product. All creations, opinions and juvenile poop humor are my own.*

When we were looking for homes in Georgia, one of our (my) requirements for a new home was a workshop/craft space. I mentioned to our amazing real estate agent that I enjoyed re-doing furniture. When she said she had a basement full of it, my eyes lit up. She left this pair of chairs with me to see what I could do with them… Perfect candidates for a chair makeover.


Excuse the basement cell phone pic.

I painted them high gloss white and dressed them in Premier Prints Canopy Storm Twill and Premier Prints Abigail Storm Slub.

Ready for the after?!












All the deets about the re-upholstery, the little bow pillow as well as tips on how to get near-perfect double welt cording will be on the blog later this week.


One more look at the before and after:

    Beautiful job! Was sent over from AT too. That double welt is magnificent, you really are good. Yes, you should do it professionally. How about just reselling on Craigslist?

      Thank you, Renee! I am not using them in a room. Our house is totally full, I just have an addiction to re-doing furniture. Playing with the idea of starting an Etsy shop to clear out the basement, though. 🙂

    These are just stunning! I love the fabric and the stripes on the back – gorgeous. Looking forward to your post about double welting. I have been commissioned to reupholster two 100 year old chairs that have double welting so this will be very helpful.

    Wow, these look fantastic Dena! What a gorgeous transformation and that fabric is soooooo pretty! I’m practically drooling just looking at them. Your photos are beautiful too! Pinned and thanks for sharing at The Makers! Have a great weekend 🙂

      Thank you, Stephanie! I posted some tips and tricks – here – but not a full tutorial, since all chairs are different. When you decide to go for it, if you have any questions or need some help, I would be more than happy to help in anyway I can! The info on the piping will be up tomorrow. 🙂

    I’m mega impressed… I’ve never reupholstered anything more than a seat cushion. Can’t wait to see the detail post on your process!!

      I would totally love to! I have an addiction. I can’t stop… I’ve been looking into getting a booth at a consignment shop but the upfront fees are so expensive! Plus, there’s a little bit of fear of not selling. It’s on my list of 2014 goals, so… werkin’ on it, girl! Thanks for the compliment!

    You are truly amazing! What next?????? I would be that REALTOR with an over abundance of furniture and STUFF! I knew you would make them beautiful. I am glad we found the perfect house for you. I told you things would fall into place. You are so darling and so very talented and
    I am glad we now have you here in Johns Creek, Georgia to call you one of our own.
    Love ya!
