Re-Upholstered My Dining Chairs

Hooray, I finally found a fabric I loved (Thank you Hobby Lobby. Best store ever.), and got around to re-covering my dining chair cushions.

Step 1.  Bought a legit staple gun. Eek!
Step 2.  Follow Lauren Conrad tutorial.  ;)  

For real! 
It was fool proof!
Check out the uber helpful video below, and full website tutorial HERE

I got a few more specific tips from Linda at Craftaholics Anonymous.  She has a wonderful tutorial HERE.
I didn't mean to use almost the same fabric as her, too! Haha!

Gather your supplies, and follow either of these tutorials.

The corners are a bit tricky - try and figure out where you want the inevitable pleats to be, and make the same folds on all four corners. (or at least the front two!)

And ta da!
Easy peasy!

A whole new modern, refreshed look, with just two yards of fabric!
So there.


  1. Love!! Okay, I am definitely using this tutorial when we re-do our dining room!

  2. What a great facelift for your chairs! Maybe this will inspire me to do something about my boring blah-brown seat cushions.

    1. Thank you! You can do it! It actually did not take long at all!

  3. Nice chairs you can easily change the design of these chairs easily .its awesome,do you know how to make chairs like this chair

    1. Hi Amery. Thanks for stopping by! Yes, definitely makes it easy to change the look of a room! Maybe this tutorial here will help you. Keep looking for a 'DIY Tutorial' on Pinterest, I am sure there are others, too, for those type of chairs!


I'd love to hear from you!
