Uphostered Chairs

I bought a "Farmhouse Table" for $5.00 at a rummage sale last May. It came with 2 chairs, so I have been looking for 4 more. I found 4 chairs a week ago, for $30.00. The wood was in good shape, the padding on the seats were in good shape, however, the material was faded and stained.

This is my first time re-upholstering a chair, it was fun, easy and did not take long. I bought extra material to make window valances. I found the material on sale, that matched my decor and taste. In fact it is similar to the one already on it.



  1. What a lovely job you have done on your chair, I love the colors and material you have chosen. Quite a talent my friend....:-) Hugs

  2. Wow! Where did you learn to do that?! I think this is great!
    And I love the bargains you found! Good job all around, Sandy!

  3. This was my first time re-upholstering. I have watched a lot of HGTV and YouTube videos before I got up the nerve to do it my self. It really is easy.


  4. My son and DIL once reupholstered my dining room chairs and it was like having new chairs. You did a great job, Sandy.

    And you can sew too?!!

    What good finds and good prices too!

    blessings and hugs,


  5. HGTV and I are 'best' friends. :) I have learned a lot from watching that channel.
    You did a great job on the chairs. Go girl!!!

  6. You did a wonderful job and way to bargain hunt1 Can't believe the table was $5! Thanks for linking up!

  7. Isn't it amazing what a small change can make? You found such a great deal on your table and chairs...I can't wait to see the matching window treatments. Thank you so much for linking up with Fabric Fun Thursday. :)
