My new vanity chair - A Furniture Makeover

My New Vanity Chair

A furniture Makeover

Follow me on Instagram

I found this beautiful chair and although very pretty it was in need of some love. 

The webbing had rotted and the seat of the chair was falling through it. The fabric had dry rot and the seat cushion was shot.

There was also some damages to the wood.  

See the webbing...

I started by removing everything from the chair, sanding it, and painting it. 

I replaced the webbing, much better now....

I used high-density foam and cut it to size. 

I stuffed the back of the chairs and then I covered the back and seat with several layers of batting. 

I picked a vintage upholstery fabric for my chair. 

Then I stapled my fabrics to the chair and I trimmed the upholstery with upholstery trim.  I found mine at Hobby Lobby.  They have quite a few furniture upholstery items.  

The vanity you see Below is also one of my furniture makeovers.  I found both of these pieces together so they now have a new look together. 

As you can see I added a vintage mirror to my vanity. 

This was a dirty job and a lot of hard work but so worth it. 

Thank you for visiting my blog.
