This post is part of a Making Good Blog Train hosted by Agatha, from Green Issues by Agy. What is repair, and why do we even bother to repair the things we have? Some see repair as a way of reconnecting with our possessions as we extend their lives. Others see it as a form of creative potential and an avenue to express their craft. The rewards for mending varies from feeling immense satisfaction to prolonging the life of the product. Follow the Making Good Blog Train this month and see what we have repaired and reconnected with.

The material was wearing on the corner and the color of the material did not match the color scheme in the bedroom.
My husband unscrewed the cushion from the chair.
After disassembling the seat from the chair, we removed the old and worn material.
My husband attached the new material to the seat with staples. As he was working on this step, I wiped the wood with furniture polish. Then, he reattached the seat to the chair.
The finished seat cushion.
I hope you enjoyed this chair makeover tutorial.

Thank you Agy, for asking me to participate in the blog train. This was a fun project for me and my husband.
