Hide CaptionShow CaptionA little burlap upholstery strapping and slipcovers turn old chairs into usable and stylish pieces of furniture.
This chair (and its twin) is the right style for the new living room but is old and in disrepair. The paining was torn and wouldn't support cushions, much less a person. Karen picked up burlap upholstery strapping from a fabric store. Weaving the strips across the back of the chair and stapling them into the wood provides support for cushions. Slipcovers clean up the look of the chair.
