I love it! I've been wanting to do something like that to my office chair. How difficult was it to take it apart and put it back together?
The seat was easy Juline! Just 4 screws. I took the old upholstery off, left the foam(it was in fairly good shape). Then I made my "cover" out of swap blocks, did a really light batting layer and put a gauzy fabric over that and straight stitched it a few times to hold it all together. Then restapled it to the seat and put the screws back in. The top was a bit tougher. It was molded plastic and I sort of had to pry the back away and carefully, using a plastic putty knife, push it in between. I only used the pieced blocks on top, had to keep that layer very thin to get it in. All nice and snug now. If the one leg hadnt been bad, I wouldnt have made the covers for them.
Juline, check out pins on Pinterest, there are some that show in photos what you have to do to a back like this. Good luck and let me know if you need any more info from me.
I need to do this, nothing wrong with my chair, this would just be so much more fun. Thanks for the inspiration
That is one cool chair!! Love it.
Great job! I didn't even know these could be recovered. Way to go!
Thimblehollow Thanks! I found my inspiration on Pinterest. I came up with the idea to cover the legs on my own. If the one leg hadnt had a sharp spot, I wouldnt have covered those :)
Love it! Think I have a few Pinterest pins like that, but haven't gotten around to it.
Oh my gosh this is awesome!
Chandra Thanks Chandra~it was fun and I am getting ready to do 2 more. I know I have enough 9 patches to do one more for sure, may have to dig up some more UFO blocks to do the other one. I will have 2 matching chairs in my sewing room when done. Will post some photos of the 2nd and 3rd when complete.
What a great and creative idea!
