Kitchen Chair Reupholstery or Remake Dilemma

This post may contain affiliate links.

I snagged this set of chairs off craigslist this week for just $5
each!  Thankfully these lovely and varied shades of 70’s browns and
oranges don’t go in our kitchen, so I’d love some ideas from those of
you who are crafty/artsy.

70's vinyl chairs in brown tones

I’ve considered that I could:

  • reupholster with a nice fabric instead of vinyl (covering the seat with clear vinyl afterwards of course)
  • add batting and change the shape of the chair backs completely before reupholstering
  • make slip covers
  • change the shape and still slipcover

 Our kitchen is white and a light gray/blue color.  I have red and black accents.

  1. I have re-upholstered chairs in the past and have loved the outcome. It will be interesting to see the after.
