DIY Chair Makeover

Last month I posted this picture on Instagram:

I bought the chair for $5 at a thrift shop and it's been sitting in our garage for about a year. I bought the fabric from The gray and hot pink match the nursery perfectly. I removed the cushion before taking a picture. Here it is in full view:

This time I read the label and did not use a separate primer. Definitely a much quicker project than the rocking chair. As you can see I wear long gloves when spray painting, as well as a mask. I placed blue painters tape on the holes, then lightly sanded and wiped the chair clean before spraying. I love omitting the priming step. It makes a huge difference with the length of a project and my time is limited with two little ones!

I used this easy tutorial for cutting and stapling my fabric, but I did not remove the previous fabric.  I used a staple gun I bought at JoAnn Fabrics.

It was such an easy project and I love my new chair!
