Fashionista Friday: DIY Chair Project During the Snow

 

Staying inside as the temperatures drop can become restless. With all of the time in the world and no where to go, one has the opportunity to embark on some new projects and take up multiple hobbies! One thing I especially love to do when I’m all cooped up is get my DIY on and craft it up!

Today, I’m inspired by this Fashionista Friday’s project, a chair transformation using Goodwill scarves! Before we dive into showcasing her genius creation, let me give you the scoop on today’s Goodwill lover!

Ann, a true Goodwill Fashionista, loves all things DIY and vintage. As you look at her Instagram, you’ll notice a plethora of funky finds ranging from typography materials to mannequins. She also posts wonderful photos of her kitty, family and travel adventures.

When scrolling through her feed, I found this inspiring DIY project where she transformed the exterior of a chair using a collection of Goodwill scarves!

As you see, she collected over 10 Goodwill scarves and wove them together to create a fabric to layer over her chair. Depending on the amount of scarves you want to use for this project, it looks like you’d only be spending around $20 or so for this chair-reviving makeover. 

Now that’s a deal! Buying a brand new chair would easily cost at least $50. Instead, with this project, you can pay much less AND have an activity to keep you busy during the frigid temps.

Thanks for sharing this transformation, Ann! I’d love to see more of your creations in 2018.
