Trashure - Furniture Makeover


 It has been a while since I showed a full process of a furniture piece. My brand new phone's camera died so haven't been able to make any videos either.

I loved the shape of this chair unfortunately it had skeletal issues so I could only reuse its legs.


I cut an upcycled piece of MDF with rounded corners and attached the legs (after sanding and varnishing) to that.


I glued a piece of firm foam to the wood and stapled fabric to keep it in place.



I knitted about 12 meters of knitted tube with this handy 'machine' each row is turned by hand so it is a manual thing but goes of course faster than hand knitting.



 
I cut strips of foam and put those in the knitted tubes.


I then stapled the short ones side by side.


Woven the longer pieces in.


And then staped those too.


I love how it turned out! The lamp is also a project I did not so long ago, it was an old coat rack but the hooks were missing so I turned it into a cool standing lamp for our own home.


I love the fresh minty color, we got the yarn while traveling last year in Florida at a thrift store! So it is a very eco-friendly project.





I stapled a contrasting colored fabric to hide the staples and endings.


This one of a kind beauty is available at StarHomeStudio.etsy.com.
