This is so awesome, and you don't need to worry about your jeans rubbing against the chair anymore (my mom won't let me sit on her white chairs when I'm wearing jeans).

Wow... that IS gorgeous. I love denim. There are denim furnitures but this looks way better beacuse it's a whole bunch of jeans together  Smiley

The lazy boy covered with jeans didn't take all that long.  I think it took about 4 hours, with my boyfriend helping.  I had 2 glue guns going at a time so that I didn't have to wait for it to heat more glue.  I started by turning it upside down and worked my way to the top for last.  You have to be sure and get way down into the creases so that when you sit on it, yo don't expose the old fabric. 

I bet I used about 12 glue sticks.  My guy had to make a Home Depot run to get more.  But it was fun! 

If you go to my website, you can see a project page about it.


I have done bar stools, too.  Any dumpster dive is perfect.  Oh!  I also covered a cool old chair with steel legs, with Black Fur that turned is amazing.  I love making trash look good.

That is the cutest chair. What a cute way of redoing an old chair.

That's SO awesome, but how well does hot glue hold the fabric down? I've got a couple of dogs, and a couple of boys (8 and 28) in the house who are rough on furniture... Can it withstand every day living?
