DIY Reupholstered Glider
Have you ever come across a fabric that you just couldn't pass up even though you don’t have specific plans for it? Good, I’m not alone. I’ve had this fabric from Ikea for a couple years, since we lived in Utah actually. Well thank goodness for little girls because now I’ve found a use. (affiliate link - you can find it online HERE
Now, I’m no expert, but here is how I recovered the glider cushions with the cute fabric. I laid out the fabric and placed the cushion on it and cut the fabric. I laid the fabric with the fold at the top of the cushion so there wouldn’t be a seam along the top.
Then fold the cushion and remove it from the fabric. Sew along the line, removing the pins before you get to them.
Once sewing is done, turn fabric right side out and put it back over the cushion. Fold the fabric at the bottom in and pin together.
With a staple gun, begin stapling one side, beginning in the middle, topping a couple inches from each corner. When one side is done do the side exactly opposite and pull snug before stapling .
I’m playing around with the idea of painting the wood white, but all the other furniture in the room is this same blonde color.
What do you think? To paint or not to paint?
