Materials: fabric, stamp of an anchor or other motif (buy one or make your own from a potato), textile paint in dark blue or color of your choice, a brush, a lever, a hammer, scissors, nails (little ones with big heads), and an old folding chair. The one shown has been in the blogger's family for years until she decided to revamp it with her grandfather's help.
1. Remove the old fabric or base from your chair. For this you will need the lever. Put it underneath the fabric, pound the lever to the nail and lever the nail out. Repeat until the fabric is loose.
2. The old piece of fabric can be used to measure the size of the new fabric. Cut a piece that‘s about 3 cms (1 inch) bigger on all sides. Fold it 2 times along the length and sew the hem, so that it has the same width as the old fabric.
3. Time to print. Paint some of the textile color onto the stamp with the brush and press it onto the fabric. Once you‘re done, wait for the paint to dry. Press it under another cotton fabric with a very hot iron for 3 minutes to seal the paint.
3. Now attach the fabric to the trestle. Fold the fabric at the width length 2 times to the outside. This is very important; if you fold it to the inside it will tear once you sit down. If you fold it to the outside, the weight will be better distributed. Then nail the fabric to the wood with the little nails. I made a zig-zag pattern to make it even more stable.
And you're done! Just find a nice place in the garden or your balcony and enjoy your new nautical folding chair.
