Beautifully Reupholstered French Country Style Chair

Last Updated on January 8, 2016 by Kristi Linauer

As I was scrolling through the projects linked up at last week’s link party, this beautiful chair makeover from Denise at Pink Postcard caught my eye. And even more amazing is the fact that this was her first time to reupholster a chair!


Isn’t that pretty? I love the combination of the white cotton duck cloth and the burlap, and the number on the back of the chair has sentimental value, which makes it even more special! Here’s how the chair looked originally…


Such a day and night difference! Didn’t Denise do a fantastic job!? Be sure to visit Pink Postcard to see more after pictures, and she also has a post where she shares some of her basic upholstery tips. If Denise can do it, and I can do it, and so many others can do it, that means YOU can do it, too!

By the way, I also have an upholstery tutorial for reupholstering an occasional chair with a tufted back. It’s written in five parts, and it’s pretty darn detailed.

    This is a great idea to change and upbeat some of my chairs in the living room. I think it is nice to add a personal touch on our furniture. It makes everything a little bit more special. 🙂
