How To: Redo Furniture for Cheap

by Rachel

I just bought a sewing chair in a bit of rough shape.

But this is like my bread and butter… I love to refurbish shit furniture because old stuff has so much more character/one of a kindness compared to the generic stuff made today. It can get expensive though, so to save money I design the pieces based on what I already have.

See above the finished the product. The paint I used was leftover from our bedroom paint, and the fabric was leftover from another chair I refurbished (actually the whole seat is from that old chair, the frame broke and the seat was perfect size!).
All in all it took about a day and a half and only cost me $20.
Its just so satisfying.
