Pretty Easy Wingback Chair Redo – Just a tiny bit of sewing!


WARNING!  If you are a perfectionist or a professional, you probably will NOT like this whole situation!  But if you want to quickly recover a wingback chair with very little sewing, then read on!

So, I was inspired by Four Generations One Roof to redo our very ugly but also very comfortable wingback chairs.  She does a way better job explaining and this is my first-ever tutorial, but here it goes.  I included some info that the other lady doesn’t have, but for a more complete tutorial, please click on the link above.  OK, here it goes:

First: I bought 5 yards of fabric for $8 per yard.  It turns out that I didn’t have enough to do the seat cushions, so I went back to the fabric store and spent about $30 on the green zebra stripes.  I think I like that it ads a bit of whimsy to my little corner.  But, it’s definitely not everyone’s style, so just go with it and think what it would look like all one color or a bunch of different color and patterns ~ that’s the beauty of it, you can choose!

    k, I just clicked over here from your fb post, and I am so glad you posted this redo! I have a chair sitting in my garage waiting for me to do this to it! 🙂 I need to figure out what fabric I want to use… and then I need to come back and read this more carefully!
