chair remix

owning white chairs with little loves around isn't the best idea... yet some how we've ended up with them! {white was such a great idea until markers and snacks found its way there...ahhh!} heres an easy way to redo your chairs in one weekend without having to fully reupholster! we took a little fabric paint and watered to it down a lot {do it to your liking but we did it about 1 tablespoon of paint : 1 mason jar of water, give or take} we also did a little bit of an ombre effect by doing a little bit thicker coat on the seat and bottom of the chair. watering the paint down gives you a lot of room to work with incase you're not sure how rich you want your color to be. then when it comes to reupholstering the back, we laid the fabric onto the back of the chair, cut it out about 1/2 inch larger than the back, folded the edges inside and hammered the upholstery tacks into the back! it may seem like a lot, but if we can do it, you can do it!
