You know we love ourselves a good Ikea hack. Love might not even be strong enough a word. And this one is practically unrecognizable from the standard store bought offerings with a pop of glossy cobalt and some leopard for good measure. This office chair is not shy but that’s why we love it so. Give an ikea piece an oh so glam update with this fab project. And for even more ikea hacks, click here!
Gloss cobalt blue spraypaint
7/16” drill bit
Hammer or mallet
2” thick foam sheet large enough for the seat diameter (we found ours at Joann’s)
Hot glue gun & sticks
Fabric measuring tape
Spray the chair cobalt blue. You’ll want to do this outside or in a well-ventilated area, and on some cardboard or a plastic dropcloth. Spray it from all angles, in 2-3 light coats, to prevent drips. Let the chair dry 1 hour.
Trace a circle 1” larger in diameter on the backside of the fabric. Cut two out two circles of fabric (you can stack two layers of fabric and cut them both out together). Measure the length around the circle, then cut a strip of fabric that long and 2 ½” wide.
