Transform Your Outdoor Furniture into Chic Living Room Chairs for Less Than $52

By Barbarayesspaces @Barbara_Miller


This is literally the easiest makeover I ever have done or probably ever will do. If you want fast and easy this is the project for you!

As summer comes to a close it’s time to store your outdoor furniture. Why pile it in the garage when you can bring it in the house and make it chic and stylish in three easy steps?

The Design


I didn’t want to have to sew anything. I didn’t want to have to paint anything, though you certainly can if your furniture needs freshening up or you find a chair in a thrift store.

I simply wanted to add and fluff for a transformation! And that is what I did.

The Materials

Fast Chair Makeover materials

  • Wicker chair or something similar
  • IKEA faux sheepskin
  • Throw pillow to match your decor

The Process

  • First, wash your chair with simple soap and water and let it dry throughrouly
  • Touch up the paint if you absolutely have to but I was staging a house here and I just used it as I found it
  • Wicker-chair-before
  • Layer the sheepskin over the pillow, so it covers the pillow entirely
  • chair-with-fur
  • Add your pillow and fluff
  • wicker-after
  • Really, that’s it…no more complicated directions this week!

The Outcome

This simple makeover took some cute wicker chairs from a slightly overcrowded front porch…


And transformed a crowded toy nook… (I ripped down the red valance too!)


Into a stylish seating area!


The Budget 

$9.99 –IKEA faux sheepskin

$19.99 – Throw pillow (I found these at Home Goods)

$19.99 – I’m throwing this into the budget in case you need to pick up a chair at your local thrift store

$0.00 – I had the soap and bucket!

TOTAL: $49.97
