As you can tell, the fabric had definitely seen better days. Also, the whole top piece was broken off and needed to be reattached. You maybe can’t tell that from the picture.
She left me with the responsibility of picking out some new fabric for it, but said she liked greens/earthy tones and wanted something that was maybe more traditional to suit the style of the chair.
So, here it is all done up. It was actually easier than I thought. If you have ever recovered a dining chair seat, this is definitely a step up, but still easily accomplishable. A good tip is to save the original fabric and use it for a pattern when cutting out your new pieces. Luckily I didn’t have to replace any of the padding.
Now you can actually sit on it!
My husband reattached the piece at the top for me, since it involved a drill and a dowel, and I’ve yet to learn how to use a drill.
