Burlap Coffee Sack Chair

I got a chair at an auction recently for $2.50. That's right, $2.50! It was in okay condition, the legs in the back were split (nothing some wood glue couldn't fix) and it was covered in an ancient ugly vinyl. On the plus side, someone had already stripped the wood arms and legs (No sanding? Bonus!). Here's what it looked like before:

And here's what it looked like after I was all done:

*Sigh* I am in love. And what's not to love? Distressed gray arms and legs:

Burlap coffee sacks for fabric:

I managed to get the back looking good for once:

And I managed to use some of the original rusty upholstery tacks I pulled out:

Yep, it's most definitely love! Have you done any upholstery projects lately?

Don't settle for dull, live a refinished life!

  1. Great stuff. Thanks. I found you at MMS Furniture Feature Friday.

  2. Hi from The North End Loft. Your chair is gorgeous! This was the look that was my first choice for my chair, but after studying the upholstery on mine, I knew redoing it was way beyond my capabilities. So I painted it instead. The comment you left me regarding my chair reinforces that I probably made the right decision, and I thank you for your comment. I really do love your chair so much, though! :)

  3. Oh my goodness, this is gorgeous!!! I have a really cool looking coffee sack and have been wondering what to do with it. I love how the stripe goes across the chair, love the bold black letters, love it all! Have a great weekend!
