DIY: OFFICE CHAIR REVAMP

HEY GUYS!! I'M SO EXCITED TO SHARE WITH YOU MY MOST RECENT DO IT YOURSELF PROJECT!!!

WHAT YOU'LL NEED
-OFFICE CHAIR
-FABRIC
-HEAVY WEIGHT STAPLER
-PLIERS/SCREW DRIVER
-STICK PINS
-SCISSORS



STEP ONE:
-TAKE THE CHAIR APART.
-THIS IS WHERE YOU WILL NEED THE TOOLS.
-UNSCREW THE CHAIR SO THAT THE CUSHIONS ARE COMPLETELY SEPARATED FROM THE OTHER PARTS OF THE CHAIR

STEP TWO:

-LAY THE CUSHION ON THE BACKSIDE OF THE FABRIC AND CUT OUT THE SHAPE OF THE CUSHION WITH ENOUGH EXCESS FABRIC TO USE FOR TUCKING.
-YOU WILL DO THIS TECHNIQUE FOR BOTH CUSHIONS.
(I ACTUALLY TOOK MY CHAIR COMPLETELY APART JUST FOR PRECISION PURPOSES BUT IT ISN'T NECESSARY)

STEP THREE:
-PIN THE FABRIC AROUND THE FRAME OF THE CUSHION
-AT THIS STEP YOU WILL USE THE SCISSORS COMPLETELY CLOSED.
-USING THE SCISSORS BEGIN TO TUCK THE FABRIC BETWEEN THE CUSHION AND THE FRAME. 
-TO MAKE SURE THAT THE FABRIC IS NOT WRINKLED PULL AS YOU TUCK.
-GO AROUND AND STAPLE IN A FEW SPOTS TO SECURE THE FABRIC
(DO THIS FOR TOP CUSHION ONLY)
-FOR THE BOTTOM CUSHION MAKE SURE THAT EVERYTHING IS UNSCREWED AS YOU WILL HAVE TO STAPLE THIS PART COMPLETELY.
-YOU WILL HAVE TO PULL THIS PART EXTREMELY TIGHT SO THAT IT WILL BE NEAT.
-AS YOU PULL, STAPLE THE FABRIC UNDER THE BOTTOM OF THE SEAT WHERE THE BASE SCREWS IN. CONTINUE UNTIL IT IS STRAIGHT, NEAT, AND SECURE.

STEP FOUR:
-SCREW THE CHAIR BACK TOGETHER TIGHTLY 

STEP FIVE:
-ADD ACCENTS IF YOU WANT TOO. IF NOT, YOU'RE DONE!!!!

IF YOU GUYS DECIDE TO DO THIS LET ME KNOW!! I WANNA SEE YOUR CHAIRS :))

THERE IT IS!!! SO SIMPLE AND WORTH THE EXPERIENCE!
