If you're clearing out winter clothes, and not sure if you should store old sweaters or just donate them to Goodwill, this is a great way to make some closet space. Danny Seo, author of the Simply Green book series, had the eco genius idea to recover chairs with discarded sweaters.
W've seen this done with pillows, or similarly, turning old shirts into a quilt, but this was a first. Plus, we love the contrast of how cozy it makes a formal dining chair!
- Cut the sweater in two so that you have the front and back, trimming off the neck and arms.
- Flip over the chair and unscrew the cushion from the base
- Tack or use a staple gun to pull the sweater taut over the chair cushion.
- Snip off any extra fabric, and screw the cover back on.
Oh--and check out the centerpiece! An easy way to make an eye catching display by reusing old bottles.
