Chic and colorful desk chair makeover

Desk chairs, even though they have varying designs and shapes, feature a series of constant details that repeat themselves for all the designs. Usually they have simple designs and they have neutral colors. Most often a desk chair is black. However, this doesn’t mean it has to remain like that forever. If you wish your desk chair were more colorful and playful, that can be easily adjusted.

This used to be a standard office chair. It was black with a lovely but very plain look. Its owner decided to give it a makeover. The main idea was to create covers for the seat and back in a bright color and a cute pattern. The covers had to be removable so they can be easily washed and put back on. For the back piece that problem was solves with the help of Velcro while for the seat elastic was used. But changing the color of the upholstery wasn’t enough. In order to give the chair a complete makeover, the frame has to be repainted as well.

The base and the armrests were painted while. It’s a radical change but, in order to create a pleasant design, the colors had to be compatible. If you plan on repainting your desk chair as well you should first identify the surfaces you are going to paint. The plastic pieces differ from the metal pieces and have to be painted differently. After the base and frame were done, the covers were applied. The only non-removable covers are those for the armrests. They are quite small and easy to clean anyway. Now the chair was complete and ready to be used again.{found on howjoyful}.
