And what do you know, another chair has joined my ‘no chair left behind’ collection.
If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I’m obsessed with rescuing old and tired chairs. When I saw this bright orange pleather office chair I knew it had the perfect bones for an upcycle.
- An old office chair
- Paint roller brush
- White metal primer paint
- British Paints Retro Peach paint
- An old sock
- Twisted paper rope from Bunnings
Apply a top coat of Retro Peach from British Paints. I used the 'odd sock' method for this to get a even coverage. Pop on a washing up glove, then a sock, and then apply the paint.
Tie one end of the twisted paper rope to the metal frame and then it's time to get weaving in a cross over style. Keep the rope taught at all times for the best finish.
This can take a while so get comfy in front of a TV series.
Do the same weaving on the back rest.
