Brought to us by the now defunct (boo hoo) Blueprint magazine, is a great idea for rescuing your old, hand-me-down chairs and turning them in to mini, personalized masterpieces! Who would have guessed a few thrift-store sweaters could be reborn into such chic dining chairs!
- Cut a sweater apart, working up the side seams and across the shoulders. Trim off the neck hole and sleeves, leaving two squares of fabric slightly larger than the seat of the chair.
- Unscrew the seat cushions from the chairs. (The screws are usually on the cushion's underside.)
- Cover the cushions with the sweater fabric, and secure the cloth edges to the underside using a staple gun or small tacks.
- Trim any excess and reattach the cushion to the chair. Cost: $0 (we like that!!!).
