We have a hodge-podge of chairs for our dining room table. There are four that match, three that match and a loner reject I picked up by the trash at a resale shop (if that shows how much it was rejected!). My husband didn’t even want me to keep it. However, when another matchy chair’s cushion got damaged, the reject chair got brought in and put at the end where no one usually sits. Unless we have a full table that is!
Embarrassed to think I’m showing you what we’ve allowed people to sit on for this long! Thankfully, not anymore! I had another chair I had become ready to re-do, so recovering 2 chair cushions seemed more worth the effort! Here’s the other chair which stands by a wall (beautifully) as a fill-in chair.
Comparing fabric options for this project was pretty simple since both cushions popped right out allowing me to pseudo-cover them with different fabrics I thought might work.
After some removal of fabric layers, cutting and stapling:
The printed floral fabric on the barley leg chair was originally a dinner napkin I bought at Crate & Barrel that I made into a pillow. I love this change! The reject chair still needs a little care for its body, but its new look is nothing I’m ashamed of!
