How to revive an old chair
Posted on

I found this chair at Megamall and placed it in the boys’ room a few years ago. It wasn’t expensive but it is oh so comfy. The boys use it mostly while playing their video games on weekends.

It has seen better days obviously. I didn’t realize how ratty it was until recently.

Luckily I remembered to buy some fabric at Ikea Singapore last January. I chose a Dutch-looking print that would brighten up any kid’s room. I was about to dump it in the cart when the Dutch in-laws insisted on rolling it the proper way

Back in Manila I tried to search online for anyone who could reupholster a chair—and then I remembered my friend Kristine Dee who makes furniture apart from her own jewelry line.
Kristine is my go-to person when I need to resurrect some furniture pieces. She is so helpful!
The chair was picked up from our house and delivered a few weeks later. They did an amazing job!!

Not bad service for less than Php 2500—including pull-out and delivery.
If you’re looking for a great, reliable reupholstery service in Metro Manila, email kdeestudio@mail.com.
Thanks Kristine!!

I love how you organize your kids room with drawers and shelves. My kids’ room looks like a bomb went off there.

Ikea fabrics are fun! When will the Philippines have an Ikea store? Should we start a campaign to get one? We have enough condos and subdivision developments to have a steady clientele!
