chair hole fixFebruary 10th, 2009 in member junk
This chair had a hole in the cane back. It could have been pricey to repair but I decided to pull out the decoupage and fabric and voila! A whole new look.Okay heres how I did this...
I trimmed the rough pieces of cane. Then used a piece of heavy duty paper like oak tag and glued it over the hole as a patch. Then I used a generous amount of nonwashable white glue to adhere the fabric to the back of the chair. Let that dry completely, then trimmed the excess with exacto knife and coated with modge podge a few coats to seal. Some fabrics are more absorbant than others and require more glue. Stay away from anything thick. Depending on the fabric I imagine you could use a different fabric on the back to add interest and make it more funky. I hope this helps! Cheers...Kelly
