Roundup: Office Chair Makeovers


Roundup: Office Chair Makeovers

Seat, back, wheels. Office chairs can be so ho-hum, which is why many see them as blank canvases just itching for a punch of personality, as evidenced by the plethora of makeovers scattered across the internet. Here are some of the fun and funkiest out there. But beware, gazing upon them might make you realize your office chair is a bit of a snoozer. 

First up is Kendra's project who not only recovered her chair, but also painted the frame and wheels. 

Joy wanted to make a cover for her office chair that she could easily remove and wash. The outcome couldn't be cuter.

Chrissie picked up an old office chair at a yard sale. She stripped off its mauve vinyl upholstery, but instead of re-covering them in new fabric, she just left it off. A bit of pistachio paint and stenciling later, and it oozes character.

Ashleigh and Sarah weren't overjoyed with the yellowish tinge of their wood chair. They decided to do a mix and match of paint and stain for their makeover.

Steven and Alison found a mid-century office chair that needed a shot of life. They refinished the wooden armrests and recovered the seat in back with a smile-inducing print.

Jenny's MCM chair makeover might make some fans of the style a bit prickly, but those who love black will approve.

For our last makeover, I'm afraid we'll have to image the before, but it isn't hard. No word on how to replicate the technique, but I'm guessing fabric paint and a steady hand. Talk about a blank canvas.
