Give chairs a one- of- a- kind up­cy­cled makeover

HOW TO MAKE A... wrapp ed chair

For a dif­fer­ent way to re­vamp an old chair, try cov­er­ing it in chincy pat­terned fabrics. Go for darker, more de­tailed prints to hide any scuffs – and then you won’t have to worry about the print match­ing- up.

Look­out at car boot sales for old chairs to buy in bulk and up­cy­cle with vin­tage scraps of fab­ric for a be­spoke one- of- a- kind look. Cut your fab­ric into strips. Use PVA glue to stick them in place, wrap­ping around as you go. Work on one area of the chair at a time to en­sure good cov­er­age.

Once the whole chair is evenly cov­ered and ev­ery cor­ner is glued down, leave to dry fully.
