how to upholster a chair

Here’s how! I have a fabulous tutorial for you today….. a step by step picture tutorial on how to upholster dining room chairs! Upholstering dining room chairs actually a lot easier than i thought it would be. this was my first hack at any sort of upholstering and i think more upholstery is in my future. i thought it was really fun. and the chairs turned out perfect! Oh and i guess using pretty fabric helped too. haha this is davis and i scored a nice dining room table with 6 chairs on craig’s list. very sturdy with great lines. but i really had my heart set on having soft dining room seating and really wanted some color on the seats for a change….. so we decided to upholster the chairs. and yes, davis helped me. we like to work on bigger projects like this together. makes for some fun memories!!

Sandpaper Printed T-shirt Kids Craft

The best part about this fun little craft is that the supplies were bought at the Dollar Store, even the T-shirt! We used crayons we already had so we only spent $2.00 on our new T-shirt.

I took some major inspiration from a certain Luella dress and all things Valentine-y to come up with this top.

And a bit more wearable, too, seeing as how it’s just a shirt, and you can pair it and wear it with just about anything. Oh, and there are pretty lace frills involved, too! What’s not to love? Stuff you’re gonna need (you can get most of this stuff at JoAnn or Michaels or your local craft-supply store): a well-fitting button-up shirt chalk lace trim (about half a yard or less should cover it) a hook-and-eye fastener sewing pins fray checkscissors measuring tape (I actually ended up not using this—but it’s always nice to have on hand) a small heart-shaped item to use as a pattern (this would be a good way to get some use out of an empty Valentine’s chocolate box) a sewing machine or just a needle and thread, whichever is your preferred sewing method 1. 2.

I wish eggs came like this at the grocery store. Make Your Own Canvas Portrait! I love the look of family photos printed on canvas, but I never knew I could make them at home!

Make Your Own Canvas Portrait!

Remember, your image will print reversed. 2. Note: You can expect an imperfect transfer. 10 T-Shirt Scarf Tutorials.
