Reupholstering a Mid Century Chair DIY

Mid Century Lounge Chair DIY No Sew Cushion Cover
Reupholstering a Mid Century Chair DIY // Alexandria Mavis Blog

My sewing skills are well, non-existent and when it came to making completely new cushion and covers for this chair I just wanted to get looking semi-finished instead of just the frame. So I came up with a no-sew alternative that cost me less than $20 and took only an hour or so. Talk about a lazy girl DIY, right?! But they look pretty good and my husband is loving his new chair (he is sitting in it as I type this).

||  What You'll Need  ||

  • Cushions (this will vary on your chair) - I got mine at a local craft store
  • Batting (about 2 -3 inches larger then your cushion) - sam craft store
  • Fabric (about 4-5 inches larger then your cushion) - thrift store for $2! 

First layout your fabric, then your batting centered on top of your fabric and then your cushion (like the photo above).

Next you just fold each layer over the cushion and secure in place with a safety pin (see what I mean -- super lazy DIY! ha). I secured the sides first and then did the corners like if I was wrapping a present.

*** If your chair has a wooden board/bottom then follow the same steps but add your wood board as the last layer and staple in place (with a staple gun - I just used my kate spade stapler to show what I meant) but you should get the idea. 

Add a cushion and you are good to go!
