DIY reupholstered wingback chair {before & after}

Updated: 2019-07-24 22:24 Views: 100

Today I am sharing our DIY reupholstered wingback chair with you. I feel like it’;s been forever since I posted a project. Do you ever feel like some things just take you twice as long as they should? I have to admit, part of my problem is that I usually have 3 or 4 projects going on at once. I have been in a funk though for the past couple weeks, not feeling very crafty or motivated.

UPDATE: This reupholstered wingback chair recently made it’;s way into the January 2013 Woman’;s Day Magazine issue along with our kitchen and dining room makeover.

Here is the before picture with the original primitive patterned fabric.

I have come so close to selling this chair (and the other matching one) so many times for a fraction of what I paid for them. My first house I bought was a 250 year old farm house and I loved primitive and very rustic decor. Thirteen years agopersonalized fathers day gifts, this was my favorite purchase ever! Now, my tastes have changed and I am so glad I never got rid of these chairs. Look what you can do with some fabric, a powered staple gun and four hours!

The fabric is Samoen Plantation, Gem by Iman.

I love the bold colors and how bright the chair now looks. I had a professional give me a quote of almost $750 to reupholster each chair. WHAAAA! I said, no thank you. The fabric was not cheap at $25/yard and I bought 8 yards. This chair used just about 7 yards. I tell ya what though, mine is not perfect but I will go with my reupholstered version any day over $750 a chair! Be sure to check out the full tutorial video of how I reupholstered this chair here.

Did you know that you can double fold the ends to achieve a “;seamed”; look?

I did this because I still need to determine my drape fabric so I wasn’;t sure which color piping to go with. Creating a seamed look allows the chair to look finished while I get my act together and make some piping. This is only my second reupholster attempt, the sawzalled couch being my first, so I am by no means an expert. Wondering how I did this? You find the full tutorial video here.

Goose Grease began as custom-painted wooden families and dolls for children. Then a few brides requested custom doll portraits for their wedding cakes. With that, the idea of the peg doll cake topper was born. It has caught on as a creative way to add a personal touch to your wedding decorations and, at the same time, have a long-lasting art object as a memory of your wedding.
