Am about to IKEA hack this cuties
I bought this beauties at a thrift store nearby. I bought 4 of them since I have been really looking for chairs for my living room. To my husband this were just ok but me because I have the crafty syndrome when I bought them they were covered with African fabric and they were white..
SO LET’S GET STARTED….
YOU WILL NEED…
■ Paint (this is not necessary if you are not going to paint your chairs)
There are so many of these paints, I never knew white has so many shade lol. use primer
■ Wood finisher/ gloss paint
■Glue gun ( I used glue gun because I don’t have a stapler).
■gloves ( I didn’t use them, it was my first time doing this I just went in.
See my arm lol
Use gloves lol
1. Started off by screwing off the seat from the chair frame.
Save the pins very important
Observe how they did the corners of the chairs so you can apply it when you are doing your chair
2. Now let’s cover the seat padding first.
I used the fabric from one of the chairs as a template then I cut out this fabric here.
Place the chair padding in the centre of the fabric and make sure the whole fabric covers all corners of the seat.
I had to do this on the floor but any who...just pleat the corners and glue down around the seat...
This is how it should look no wrinkles on the fabric, just flawless. Now we are done, done with the seat, now time to do the chair frame.
3. Painting the chair frame… phew this is work I tell you… I used 7 bottles or cans of paint. I bought this paint from Walmart.
I took the chair outside and sprayed all over the chair frame and I made sure that no brown was showing, anything but white
I bought the paper poster board at a dollar store. Which i layed down to protect the floor from the paint.I did all 4 chairs and I waited for them to dry, which was the next day and I applied the wood finisher to give them that shinning gloss finish.
This chair just like Drake it started from the bottom now its here.
I thrifted the guitar too for $9.95
Lol now I can have guests over and rub it in their faces lmaoo.... IKEA HACKED
If you are in Miami I can do your chairs/ couch for you, using african fabric..I don’t charge much, just the change you have hihihi 😆😂😂😂😂😎.
Until next time America and Africa
Until next time.
