Chair Makeover

I picked up this chair at an estate sale a while back and finally got around to give it a makeover. It didn't take much and I'm happy with the out come. First i had to get the old ripped leather seat off and all the broken tacks. After i got it all removed i was left with a hole in the center of the seat, I'm thinking there was an original wicker seat and when that wore out they replaced it with leather. I used murphy's oil soap and hot water and washed the chair a few times. As the chair was drying i drew out  the shape of the hole onto plywood and covered it with some upholstery i had.


  1. love your 'new' chair! The seat cushion looks great - love the fabric you chose.
