Easy Habitat Restore Chair Makeover

Habitat Restore is one of my favorite places to find treasures. It’s a hit or miss kind of place. But this day was a “hit”! I found two great chairs that needed just a little help. Check out this easy chair makeover.

I picked up these two chairs for just $15 each. They weren’t horrible looking, except for the cushion covers, but I knew right away I was going to spray paint them.

After taking the cushions off, I wiped the chairs down and gave them a light sanding. Then brought them outside for spray painting.

I used Rustoleum Ultra Cover Paint + Primer spray paint in Heirloom White. It took several coats to get the coverage I wanted.

I forgot to take picture when I recovered the cushion. Sorry! I just took off the old fabric and trim and replaced it with new fabric, stapling it to the back. I made trim for the chairs using cording and fabric. The cording was hot glued to the bottom edge of the seat.

These chairs went to our antique Booth. But I had a hard time letting them go. I love how they turned out. If I had a place to put them in my house, they would still be in my house.

But off they went. And guess what? They sold! Our first sale! 😀
