Posh Inspirations: Office Chair Makeover

We have been crazy busy over here! This is great, although I also really miss my sleep! We have been working on three very exciting projects. Plus my Yanna started preschool!! I can't believe how time flies! We have been looking into office chairs for the studio for some time now. But it seems as though they are either drab and boring or they are ridiculously expensive. So while doing my daily looksie on Pininterest I got inspired to do it myself! Being a DIY girl, it somehow passed me to think that I could just do an office chair makeover myself. So this weekend I picked up some fab fabric and started small.

Everyone, meet my folding chair from college (hey, small budget, small space) notice the great craftsmanship of my father's duck tape repairs. She's a beaut! And a great starter chair before I tear apart my office chair and end up having to sit on the floor if it is too much to do.

I took the chair apart with a screwdriver. Placed the chair seat and back onto the piece of fabric (1 yard) and cut out what I thought would work. I wrapped the chair pieces in fabric then took the trusty staple gun and started to shoot it. I followed where the existing fabric was tacked down. I placed the trim back on and then screwed each piece back onto the frame. Voila! My new folding chair!

Here are some other fab chairs that people have done.

On howjoyful.com she did an amazing job with her office chair! I love how she even thought about painting it. I have taken some notes for my office chair! She has a tutorial as well on her site.

Lindsay with BetterAfter.blogspot.com may be THE place to go to see what you can do with old furniture! I am in awe of the blog! I really love this little office chair. I am going to have to redo my couches after the inspiration for this site!

Megan with Doityourselfdivas.blogspot.com has this sharp number! Plus a great layout of all of the materials you would need to do this. Definitely check it out!

Well, I will probably be distracted now and will look up fabrics to redo all of the chairs in my house. Reupholstering may be my new love! I would love to see your projects!
Be inspired and Be Posh!


  1. Great idea a fabric glue would also better, but I love to sew. You have a simple plain Bean Bags, they right just put some designs to look more attractive.
    Thanks for sharing with us.
