Pimp My Folding Chair - DIY Makeover Inspiration & How To

When did those less than appealing $10 folding chairs become all crazy, sexy, cool?


I don't own any of these chairs because the thought of bringing them out at a BBQ makes me cringe, until now... I thought you had to buy the cool Pantone versions at $90 each, in order to offer your guests a chair, but this is no longer the case thanks to a few clever crafters who have come up with a simple DIY transforming these chairs into one off designer cuties!.

The how to

This is design for mankind's picture tutorial

remove the cushion using a screwdriver

Spray the chair using the colour of your choice in a well ventilated area (best outdoors) making sure you protect everything around you as the paint goes everywhere

Using the cushion as a template cut out your fabric and staple it to the back as shown

Then simply replace the cushion and enjoy!

I am sooo doing this!
