Today’s featured DIY project is focused on how to restore, recover or reupholster and refinish an old rocking chair.
The nice thing about old furniture is that it has generally been built very well. Not only has old furniture been built well, there’s also some beautiful woodworking and finishing on many of these old pieces, this chair being no exception.
And so you have this amazing wood frame for an old piece of furniture, like a rocking chair, but the other components (like the cushion and springs) have broken down over time. Often times, it’s just the fabric that is in not-so-great shape. Well, we want to share a project on how Tarah from Grandma’s House DIY had recovered and reupholstered her grandmother’s old rocking chair.
She did an amazing, professional job and it looks spectacular!
She shares step-by-step how to recover an old chair with a new fabric cover. This is such a great project, that anytime you see an old chair at your next garage sale or thrift store, you may want to consider snatching it up and having a classic piece of furniture restored to your home’s ambience and colors with this project idea.
