Step by Step Instructions
1.) Find your chairs that you would like to update.
2.) Then unscrew the seat of the chair. Put it somewhere safe from paint splatter.
3.) Clean the chairs really well. I did end up doing some light sanding, then cleaned it really well with soapy water.
4.) Prepare your space, put down a whole lot of newspaper.
5.) Start painting, I did have a paint sprayer but i didnt like the result. So i sprayed the paint onto the chair and then brushed it after. You could just brush or roll what you can.
6.) Be patient, you have to wait a long time for the paint to completely dry (maybe 24hrs).
7.) While waiting for you chairs to dry you can recover the cusions on your chairs. I do not have pictures of this step.... All you need to do is find some fabric that is durable and something you like.
Place your cusion on the fabric, leave an extra 5 to 10 inch border around the cusion.
Lightly pull the fabric on one side and staple onto the bottom of the seat.
Turn and staple the oposite side (you want to pull the fabric so there are no creases on the top but you dont want to pull to hard where it looks like the fabric is strained)
Continue doing this on each side pull and staple, then turn to another side, pull and staple.
I leave the corners until last. It is kinda teadeous work. Fold the corners very neatly then staple tem into place.
