Make This | Reupholster A Chair?




So one day, about a month ago my boyfriend brought home this chair....it was free from an apartment complex lobby. We love DIY's and fixer upper projects. However this one I wasn't too sure about. I am not great at sewing, and it seemed like a big project.  We bought new fabric (brown pleather) for $38.  After about 8 hours and a few mistakes we finished the chair. It looks like new, yay, with a few mess ups here and there haha. Honestly I don't think we would do it over again, we would most likely just go buy a chair from ikea.
I just wanted to share this, because I am pretty proud that we actually pulled it off!
















































Want to reupholster your own chair (all though I don't recommend it), below are some great resources we found! Good luck if you try it for yourself!
