For a lot of people the thought of re-covering a chair is intimidating. But that’s easy. So, so easy. It’s the re-painting that tough, messy, tiring work. When I upcycled a pair of stools for the Vancouver Home and Design Show a few seasons ago, I spent minutes with the staple gun putting on new fabric but I spent hours and hours sanding and painting.
So this DIY from A Beautiful Mess would be an undertaking and a half. Not only is the table made from scratch, but the chairs were all sourced at different flea markets, sanded down and painted a million coats of vibrant yellow. But man, would it be worth it.
