Shearling chairs are a huge trend right now, but getting the look can get pricey. I’m showing you how to reupholster a thrifted or on-hand chair using just a sherpa blanket, staple gun, and some scissors.
for your DIY shearling chair, you’ll need — sherpa blanket ($20) + a chair to upholster
Any upholstered chair that’s in good condition will work for this project. The sherpa blanket will essentially act as a custom cover (fully removable) that goes over the top of the existing upholstery.
The upholstery process can take some practice, but this fabric is super beginner friendly because it’s very stretchy and is thick enough to hide staples well.
Staple the fabric to the FRAME of the chair, making sure to sink the staples into wood for a good hold. For the slower step-by-step process, hop over to my #fridayflips instagram story highlight bubble for this project, or watch the full process below.
