This is what I started with -- sorry, I forgot to take a before picture. However, it was a chair just like this, only all white.
This is a chair pad my kids got me for Christmas.
The bottom is very sticky (even picked up some paint -- YIKES). However, it is very ugly (sorry kids). It also made me feel older.
Now, this is the coolest thing ever, this is an awesome burlap sack. I ordered it from burlapfabric.com. What a wonderful cover for my ugly cushion.
I wanted to keep the sticky on the back so the pad won't slide around. I just measured the top and sides and cut a piece out. I love the stripe, so I made sure that is would be on the piece I cut out.
This is awesome if you don't want to sew (or don't know how).
Just run a line all around the burlap so it wont unravel on you.
I pinned the cushion together because that is how it looks in the chair and I wanted a snug fit.
I waited for the glue to dry then I sprayed it with tacky glue and pressed it down smooth. I just tucked and glued all the edges. I now the underneath is not pretty, but, I wanted to keep the sticky part so it would hold in my chair in place.
I then took some black paint, a brush and added No. 1 to it with some stencils I got from Wal-Mart.
Not too bad. I like it much better than the the solid black pad. Now on to the chair.
It was an old chippy white chair. I didn't sand it because I wanted the chippy look to show through. I'm happy with the way it turned out. I just used a glossy yellow paint from Wal-Mart.
I did sand it in areas and used a little stain to help the distress show through.
Well, that is that. What do think?
Thanks for stopping by.
