Today we are sharing projects using fabric and I am so excited to share this little chair makeover with a woven burlap fabric.
This was my Great Aunt’s chair that was originally a dark cherry but it was pretty beat up. I actually updated this a few years ago with white paint and a floral print.
Unfortunately, the floral doesn’t go in my home anymore, so I decided to change it up with something more neutral.
I received the fabric used in this post from BurlapFabric.com

I kept the white paint as I really like neutrals-for now anyway! This is so simple to do and brought back memories of summer camp many years ago!
The best thing is this is no sew. Here is what you need:
- 1 Roll of Burlap Fabric Ribbon
- Hot Glue Gun
It really is as simple as just laying out the fabric across your seat and cutting the pieces as long as you need both lengthwise and then horizontal.
I laid the strips lengthwise first then used hot glue to attach it to the sides and under the seat. This seat actually lifts up for storage as I believe it was an old sewing chair.
Then I wove the burlap fabric strips through-again only using a little hot glue along the edges. I can’t believe how much I love this little chair now with something as simple as woven burlap fabric!
Wait until you see what the other talented ladies are sharing.
