I picked up this chair a few weeks ago at my local Goodwill. I have always wanted to reupholster a chair, but was never able to find that perfect chair.

Then I came across that UGLY leather chair. But it was only $1, so I bought it with a vision in my head of what I could make it look like.

The best part?? When taking off the original cover, I found $.16 stuck in the cushions...which means I only paid $.84 for this baby!

I wish I had a tutorial on this for you, but I don't. Since this was my first try at reupholstering, I didn't document it all. BUT, if you want to know how I did it, email me. 

My ugly ducking chair is now a swan!!! Let's take another look!!!!

Wow!!! I can't believe you got a chair for $1 at Good Will! You don't shop at my Good Will that's for sure...this would have been $10 I bet! Seriously!

But...I LOVE the re-do! I think it turned out amazing!!

I host a weekly Friday link party i would love for you to come and link up at if you are interested!

gorgeous makeover! It may have been ugly, but I still can't believe it was only $1...that is a steal! I love the fabric you chose & you have inspired me to attempt to recover a chair in my house that I have been too intimidated to try!

I'm so impressed. Upholstering is no easy feat, I tried once and let's just say that I ran out of curse words to scream.

LOVE this!! Are you posting a tutorial?

Jordan said...

HI Faith! I was wondering how you got that nice rolled edge at the top of your chair? It looks really great! I am working on my own first attempt to recover a similar style chair and would love to know how to do that edging! It really makes the chair look nice!

Betheny said...

Wow...I mean...just...wow. I NEVER would've picked up that ugly chair in a million years as a make-over piece. You are quite the visionary. I REALLy want to know how you did the top. I might be able to figure out the bottom by looking at it. Beautifully done. Very clean work. jbtomseth@msn.com
