Hello, craftsters!

I found this old folding chair in my parents' garage and decided to give reupholstering a try.


Luckily, the little back part popped right out and the cushion unscrewed.

I traced around the cushion with newspaper and added a couple inches seam allowances.

I got a staple gun and stapled the fabric around the new cushion.

Finished cushion.

Finished back.

Then I sanded and painted the chair frame brown instead of the black.

Finished chair!

You were born an original. Don't die a copy.
