Upcycling on the Old Office Chair

And what do you know, another chair has joined my ‘no chair left behind’ collection.

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I’m obsessed with rescuing old and tired chairs. When I saw this bright orange pleather office chair I knew it had the perfect bones for an upcycle.

You Need:

  • An old office chair
  • Screwdriver
  • Paint roller brush
  • White metal primer paint
  • British Paints Retro Peach paint
  • Gloves
  • An old sock
  • Twisted paper rope from Bunnings


How to

Take apart the old chair with screwdrivers so that the metal frame remains.

1

Apply a coat of white metal primer.

2

Apply a top coat of Retro Peach from British Paints. I used the ‘odd sock’ method for this to get an even coverage. Pop on a washing up glove, then a sock, and then apply the paint.

3

Tie one end of the twisted paper rope to the metal frame and then it’s time to get weaving in a cross over style. Keep the rope taught at all times for the best finish.

This can take a while so get comfy in front of a TV series.

Do the same weaving on the back rest.

Like what you see? Or just want to save it for later?

Voila!
