Mini Seat Makeover
When I saw it at New Uses, I couldn’t resist myself. Before I even got it to my car, I had big plans for this little charmer.
Step One: Detach the cushion using a simple screw driver.
Easy enough, right? Now you’re left with the simple gold base that needs some new color.
Step Three: While the paint is drying, pick out a new fabric and reupholster the cushion. I have absolutely z.e.r.o. experience reupholstering, so if I can handle it… I swear you can too!
Step Five: Cut off the extra fabric.
Step Six: Use the old screws to re-attach the cushion to your newly glamorous silver base!
Step Seven: Enjoy the fruits of your labor. This vintage cushion is now oozing new preppy-ness and I love, love, love it! Tune in tomorrow to see what other DIY project I paired this lil’ cushion up with. Any guesses?
I’ll give you all the scoop tomorrow morning @ 7am. You bring the coffee, I’ll bring the dramatic DIY. Until then…
