Dining Chair Makeover with fabric

Hi All,

How are u? I am back after a long hiatus with the tutorial for our dining chairs makeover with fabric.

lets see how the chairs looked before and how they look now :)

before the tutorial, here is a before and after view when you walk into the dining room.

The chairs are very comfortable but the boring back always drove me crazy. When I told hubby dear that I am going to do some thing for the back, he didn't want something permanent and I didnt want to apply any appliques. While I was scoring internet for ideas, I came across this post from dimples and tangles and decided to use fabric.

All that you need for this project is fusible backing material, fabric, glue dots, trim and some hot glue.

- Trace the template using the chair. Cut the fusible backing material and fabric using the template

- Fuse the backing material to the fabric by ironing.

- Attach the fabric to the chair using the glue dots

-- Attach trim using hot glue

Chairs look beautiful with the back all decked up.

Did you do any makeovers using fabric? Would love to hear.

Have a wonderful week ahead and thank you for stopping by

  1. That is so awesome Bharathi. Loved the colors.
    Can use the same material for the Chair seat as well ?

    1. Thank u Jyothsna. Yes, it can be used on the chair seats as well

  2. Bharati, I love this fabric that you picked. The backing looks absolutely beautiful.

  3. What a beautiful transformation! Very clever to use the glue dots instead of something that may damage the chairs!

    1. Thank you Pat. With ever evolving dining room design, I wanted the flexibility to change or remove fabric if needed.:)
