An old wooden chair that isn't looking as good as it once did can be much improved through using decoupage on it. Decoupage is the art of adding decorative paper or fabric pieces to an object to brighten it up and make it beautiful.

Cover a wooden chair with brightly colored, tastefully designed upholstery fabric to transform it into an office chair you will love. This tip is excellent for those that are short on money and would like to mimic the look of high end upholstered chairs. Learn how to decoupage furniture with fabric with this detailed tutorial! It allows you to get the look of upholstery without the expense! Give your wooden chairs a new look with a new paint job!


  • Fabric (you can purchase the fabric I used here). The amount you need depends on the size of your chair and how you want to position the pattern. I used around 1 yard.
  • A basic wood chair (I found the one I used for only $44.00–here is a link to the exact chair I used for this project). If I had more time, I would have checked out some consignment stores where I bet I could have found one for even less!
  • Matte Mod Podge
  • Spray paint (if desired–I spray painted the silver metal with gold spray paint)
  • Exacto knife
  • Foam paint brush
