Made By Me Monday # 12: Kitchen/Dining Room Chair Redo! {GIVEAWAY!}

Wow it has been a crazy week! The hubs and I are starting a new workout plan tomorrow and I’ve been up all night prepping so if you have questions about the tutorial (which I sort of expect) feel free to ask!
For this project, you will need:
4 chairs (I got mine at Value Village Yay!!)
Sandpaper
White Spray Primer (I used Krylon)
White Spray Paint (Again…Krylon)
Foam for chair pads (measure your chair before you buy these!
Fabric for your charis (I used an outdoor fabric because it is sturdy and fairly easy to clean)
Step 1: Sand your chairs
I first tried to use a chemical stripper…not a good idea! I had to wait for the goop to dry and then sand it off anyways so I might as well have just sanded… Oh! Say hello to my partner in crafting – Murphy! He was a little distracted because Eric was walking over…silly pup!
Step 2: Spray the primer onto chairs
Use your White Spray Primer to spray your chairs. You don’t need to spray the seat because you are just going to cover it. I used one can of primer per chair.
Step 3: Spray the paint onto chairs
Use the White Spray Paint to finish your chairs. Again, you don’t need to spray the seat because you are going to cover it and I also used one can of paint per chair.
Step 4: Cut the foam to fit the seat
Cut your foam chair pads to fit the shape of your seat. I left a little bit of overhang because it just makes the edge of the seat more comfortable.
Step 5: Cut the fabric
Cut your fabric to leave a good overhang on either side. Make sure to account for a 1/4 inch seam.

Step 6: Sew the fabric (optional)
I used my sewing machine to finish the edges of my fabric. This is not necessary…it would still look awesome if you didn’t do this.
Step 7: Staple fabric onto chair
I used a staple gun for this step…and my husband haha! Pull the fabric tight across the foam pad that is sitting on the seat of the chair. Staple each side into place with minimal space between the staples. You want it to be secure so use as many staples as you need.
Done! Now you have the most beautiful chairs around! Can you tell that I love mine? haha
