Modern. Boho. Rustic. Industrial. Farmhouse. The beauty of a deconstructed chair is that it can fit in with just about any decor style. I adore the simplicity of this DIY deconstructed chair that I have added to my living room. Be still my heart, I am in love!

DIY Deconstructed Chair

Yes, deconstructed furniture is a “trend” right now but I hope it stays around for a very long time. I don’t know which aspect draws me to it but I love the artistic flare as well as the industrial vibe it gives off.

I have been anxious to try my hand at deconstructing a piece of furniture but I have seen some horrible, disgusting projects that had me a bit hesitant.

I was lucky to be gifted two identical chairs covered in a pink plaid fabric. They were very cute with sturdy bones but pink is not my color. You can take a peek at the before pics of my chairs prior to deconstruction

Needless to say, my husband and I were pleasantly surprised when we peeled back the five layers of upholstery to see that these beauties were not only well made but had all the character and charm I wanted to create.

Gorgeous wood lines, burlap lining and patchwork stitches. 

I had originally planned to use drop cloth to cover the chairs but I scored an awesome deal at the thrift store.

I picked up a brand new UGG duvet at the thrift store for less than $10. The material is a very heavy fabric that is cream colored, with farmhouse stripes and a linen look.  Perfect for this deconstructed chair project.

I am giving my husband full credit for this project as he painstakingly removed hundreds of staples. Not to mention, he put up with my endless “directions” and still loves me at the conclusion of the project. 

At the writing of this post, we have only completed one of the chairs and it has been well loved by the entire family. It has also become the favorite napping spot for our cat.

      Me too! It was definitely one of my best thrift store scores and I debated for a long time if I should use the duvet on a bed or cut it up for the chair. So glad I went with the chair option.
