Use This IKEA Hack to Update Your Classic Rattan Chair
No one loves a good IKEA hack more than us creative folks at B+C. Today we’re using old jersey fabric to add some color to a rattan chair. Not only is jersey fabric really comfortable to wear (and comes in bright colors), but it’s the perfect material to turn into rope. Simply cut an inch strip and tug on it tightly to turn it into jersey yarn. Follow along below to see how we layered our wrapping techniques to embroider this chair and turn it into a statement piece for the warmer months.
Materials and Tools:
Prepare all your jersey into long strips and pull tightly to create rope. Wrap around all parts of the chair to create an embroidered masterpiece. Warning — this GIF gets it done in *one, two, three,* but this wrapping will actually take a few hours.
This IKEA chair comes with a set of cushions, but we opted to just buy the chair and adorn the seat with a plush tasseled pillow.
Plush tassel pillow and a cute pup will do the trick!
