Simple! Create a unique armchair with playful colours and fabrics.
It’ll instantly make your room feel more like you.
And the best part?
It’s much easier than you think!
Seriously, I had no clue how to upholster before I learned it from YouTube. And if I can do it, YOU can do it too!
So today I’m super excited to share in this video how I reupholstered our bedroom’s armchair.
And even though it’s not perfect, I’m SO in love with it, because I made it myself and no else in the whole world has a chair exactly like this one! Plus that floral fabric is EVERYTHING!
Need some tips to help you choose the fabrics? Watch this Facebook Live, where I shared with my lovely members from The Blooming Home Society how I put a scheme together!
- Carpet tacks + magnetic hammer
- Tack lifter/ staple remover + plier
- Hot glue gun + sticks
- Stapler + staples
- Fabric in different textures
Step 1. Remove existing fabric without damaging it.
Step 2. Label each piece.
Step 3. Take pictures as you go, it’ll guide you put it back together in the correct order.
Step 4. Try the fabrics on the chair to make sure you’re happy with your choices.
Step 5. Cut the new fabric using the old pieces as templates.
Tip: Cut it bigger than the template
Step 6. Sew the fabric where needed.
Step 7. Put the fabric in place
Step 8. Secure it with staples and carpet tacks.
Tip: pull the fabric as much as you can.
Hope this DIY project will inspire you to give upholster a try and create something super special to your home and totally unique to you too!
To a colourful life!
