REUPHOLSTERED | glider chair

Chair 003

I’m happy to show you my first reupholstering job! My friend Amber and I recovered this glider chair and matching ottoman that she found for $50 bucks at a garage sale. She wanted to cover it with some fun fabric that matched her baby nursery and we both thought the shape could use some updating, which is why we added the buttons. We really didn’t know what we were doing so we just kind of guessed and started measuring! Here’s what the cushions looked like before.

Before (faded and outdated):


After (pretty and matching):

Chair 004

It’s amazing what a little fabric will do!

Amber is the same friend I painted wall flowers for and now that we are finished with the chair, her nursery is complete! On her baby blog, you can see some video she captured of the completed nursery. I love all the little details she added to bring it all together and personalize it!
