Everyone has that old chair that they don’t want to throw away. It’s your favorite chair, and you can’t think of living life without it. But your old chair looks kind of shabby, and you wonder if it’s worth giving it new life. Well, guess what? You can revitalize your old chair by throwing a throw blanket over the seat.
Here’s how it’s done:
Buy a throw blanket that is larger than your chair.
It should be longer and wider by at least 20 inches. You can make it look more like a coverlet if you want to take this up one notch. The point is that you want your blanket to be bigger than the chair, both in length and width. That way, when you wrap the blanket around the back of the chair, it’s going to stay on more securely as opposed to an undersized throw that will slide right off immediately.
Drape the blanket over your chair.
Now, this is tricky, and you may want to have someone assist you with this part so that it doesn’t fall off and get messed up in the process. The blanket should lay across the top of the back and drape down along either side of the seat cushion. If there’s a lot of excess fabric, you can fold it back over the cushion to get a full and complete look. But if there’s not enough fabric, don’t worry about making ends meet. Even when the blanket isn’t fully covering the seat, it still looks great.
Secure it with tassels or ties along the top of the chair’s back.
There should be a place to tie the blanket along the top of the chair’s back. If there isn’t one, you can tie it together in front or just leave it open and let it rest across the cushion. The ties allow you to add color and personality to your throw blanket so that when you’re all done, the chair really pops.
Add tassels or pom-poms to your ties for an extra special touch.
This is where you can get creative by adding color and flair to your throw using tassels or pom-poms. You can buy all kinds of tassels at craft stores because they’re all the rage. And as for pom-poms, those are pretty easy to make; all you need is some yarn and some scissors.
And that’s it! You can change up your chair as often as you want with different throw blankets, and each time it will look like a new chair because no two throws will ever be the same.
You don’t have to give up your favorite chair because it’s old. Instead, keep your chair in style by giving it a new look with an Everlasting Comfort throw blanket. You’ll find that it’s a simple trick that takes hardly any time at all. And the result is an expensive-looking chair for less than $50! The best part is that you can change your throw blanket out as often as you want, so this idea never gets old.
