A great way to give your dining room an updated and upcycled look is with repurposed scrap fabric turned into patchwork. Look to your own wardrobe to collect your scraps. Heavyweight fabrics from retired shirts, jackets, and pants work great. Leftover fabric from past projects are also a good scrap source. Stay away from ones that have a lot of stretch and your patchwork assembly will be simple.
I intentionally chose two chair frames that were similar, but didn’t quite match. This way, when I want to add to the collection, I can continue with the same color scheme, but can go with slightly different chair styles.
Once you’ve finished your patchwork chairs, don’t forget to make a matching table from an old door. Select one of the colors from the cushions to paint the tabletop and it’s the perfect pairing for your patchwork.
