Today I finally got around to reupholstering the hand-me-down Ikea dining chairs my mom gave me when I moved. The “before” version pictured here is actually a previous reupholstery done by my parents.These chairs are at least ten years old so for Ikea, they’ve held up surprisingly well.
I didn’t document the process since it’s pretty self explanatory—I just removed the four screws that attached the cushions to the frame of the chair, removed the previous fabric and went staple-crazy.
I’m really happy with the results! I was fond of the previous fabric (although it was dirty and thus needed an upgrade), but this fabric is definitely much more “me,” I was surprised by how much the crisp white and bright green colors brightened up the room. I also like how the orange color of my purse looks with the fabric, so I’m going to try and pick up some tangerine colored accents.
