Fresh Flickr Finds: Remixed Chairs

August 31, 2010, 18:36 pm  Posted by Lark

Long story short: I’ve had a touch of the remix bug ever since I laid eyes on Sandy Stone’s stunning projects in Fabric Remix. I’ve spent a large portion of my summer searching our local thrift stores for fun (and easy) furniture makeover projects. Since I’m no upholstery master, chairs make a great starting place (especially since upholstery fabric is such a great other kind of fabric to love!). Check out these fresh remixes from talented flickr folks…. some seriously scrumptious finds!

    Simple reupholstered chair bottoms is one of the easiest updates to a room I’ve found! I am no seamstress and could never do a stuffed chair, but I have twice updated the fabric on my kitchen chairs. Most recently I reused the vintage fabric from the tablecloths from my wedding. Just pop off the bottom, staple new fabric over the old and then screw it back on! Voila! Okay…maybe it isn’t that simple for all chairs and maybe I should have used upholstery fabric…hrmmm…but mine look great and I guess I will update them again before the fabric wears! Thanks for these finds! love the colors!

    I have the furniture finds – two great mid-century pieces – this sofa is a real find – sigh. They’re in storage in Asheville, NC and I am in Florida. Anyone who wants to use them for this project can have them.

    Way cool, some valid points! I appreciate you making this article available, the rest of the site is also high quality. Have a fun.

    Great wordpress blog here.. It’s hard to find quality writing like yours these days. I really appreciate people like you! take care
