Deck chair make over

I got 2 deck chairs at the flea marked recently.

Woodwork and seats were in an okay condition – but the colours were dull – a not so flattering dark brown and a greyish ditto so I decided to redo both chairs.

A layer of white paint – and 2 new seats made out of 2.nd hand fabric and embroidery and a back of a new and strong canvas is what I’ve done so far.  Now I only have to figure out the best way to connect the fabric to the wooden frames.

Think I’ll buy some little brass nails today…

  1. I remember my grandparents had old deck chairs like these.
    As a girl I loved them 🙂

    Oh! I would love to know how you did this. I have two chairs that I adore, but the seats are gone. The frames used to be strung with rope, but I suspect fabric could work… it’s the attaching part that gets me. 😀

    Stunning. I adore them. 😀

    Oops… I see that you put up another post with an answer to my question! (I came here from a direct link on Whiplash!). Thanks again for the idea! Lovely.
