Hey-Hey Foxy Friends!
Sharing a budget project today.
My $5 Coffee Sack Chair Makeover!
Mr. Foxy helped on this one. The extra set of hands was pretty “handy”!
What? Too cheesy?
Anyhow, I started on my own, but the giant stapler barley fit in my hands, and it kept jamming.
I may or may not have called it a piece of ____. (you can use your imagination)
So my hubby kindly came and gave me a hand.
Teamwork. Gotta love it.
I lined up the seam of the bag to make it look like an embellished trim.
Totally cool cheat!
Then I used this numbered side of the bag as my design accent.
Totally cool cheat. #2.
I was going to stencil something, but I thought it looked pretty good as-is.
So I left it alone!
In a nutshell. I slipped the chair pad in the bag to assess the placement.
Flipped it over. Sliced it open. Stapled the front section with the seam.
Then cut excess fabric and proceeded to (have Jim) staple away.
The bag was a gift Jim picked up for me last Summer when the guys went on their Manly-Men road trip! He is a good “picker”!!
The coffee sack was 100% Hemp. I love that it has the “Burlap Vibe” but it’s much softer!
On the actual chair frame, I used Maison Blanche Vintage Furniture Paint in Magnolia
I might add a little dry brush accenting, or maybe some Organza. I have not decided. Thoughts? Sometimes, I’m afraid to add more for fear it’ll go from “Just fine. To, I should have stopped while I was ahead!”
So I held off. Sometimes, I have to really let things roll around before I make a move.
Before I forget, have you heard about Simply The Best?
Sorry to interrupt, but I’m pretty excited!!
Okay now, back to that chair…
I liked the original black very much. It had a long happy life.
But, it had been black for over 10 years and I was tired of it
I’ve got an odd set of 5?
So I figured I’d practice on this one.
I discovered painting chairs is a real pain. So far, the other 4 are safe.
and I’m out of coffee sacks.
