I often stop in my tracks when I see something beautiful from our house tours. But I do a full-on happy dance when it's also a DIY project that I can do myself at home. Last month I spied this riveted leather chair hack from Darlene Molnar, and she was kind enough to share the process for making one, which I am passing on to you. I have a couple of Bertoia-style chairs kicking around, and I'm dying to give it a whirl.
What You Need
- Bertoia Wire Chair, or something similar
- 50-60 Double-sided Rivets
- Leather Shears
- Leather Punch
- Rivet Setter Set
Option: Cut slightly rounded edges for a more finished, detailed look.
4. Secure with rivets and you are done! For instructions on how to do rivets, click over to see Tandy Leather's handy tutorial.
Good luck with your project! If you love this look, but don't want the work, head on over to Darlene's website to buy a chair instead.
