Reupholstered Glider


One of my favorite things to do is rock my boys. Yes, they are getting big, but they are still my babies. My glider was getting too disgusting to look at, so I hid it from sight for a while until I could get around to reupholstering it.




This was something I had wanted to do for a long time. I have seen so many tutorials on Pinterest and finally got around to doing it myself. I got the cute chevron fabric from good old Wal-Mart. I love it!

I didn't really follow a specific tutorial and just used my small sewing knowledge to do it. However, my favorite tutorial so far is from Lil Blue Boo.

What do you think? I think it turned out okay for my first time reupholstering anything. :)

    1. I know, right?! I was kind of shocked when I first saw it, too. I just figured such a cute chevron would come from an expensive fabric store. I grabbed that role of fabric faster than a woman grabbing socks on black friday! haha I would love to share the link love! Thanks for asking. :)

  11. Great color choice! I recovered my glider, too, that was a hand-me-down from a decade+ ago. Sturdy but ugly. I went with a bolder print, too. Its so fun to see, and use!
