Chair Makeover With Custom Graphics On The Seat

Last Updated on January 8, 2016 by Kristi Linauer

I’ve seen a couple of different methods for transferring a picture onto fabric, but when Suesan at Frou FruGal reupholstered her chair with a custom graphic design, she did hers by hand…with an over head projector…and Sharpie markers. Yep, the whole design is hand-drawn.

Can you believe that was done with Sharpie markers? I’m amazed. And even more amazed considering that the chair started off looking like this…

If you’d like to do your own hand-drawn image with Sharpie markers onto fabric, Suesan gives some good tips on how to get it to look just right. Get the details at Frou FruGal.

    Awwww, Kristi, you’re so sweet. Look at you featuring my chair and all! Thank you so much for the shout out. I’m glad you liked my chair. Now, if I can just keep the man from piling his dirty laundry on there. 😀

    Love this. Nice you have another option for a chair with a cane seat.
