Who would have thought that Kmart tea towels could be used to reupholster dining chairs?
A mum has shared her clever hack to the Kmart Mums Australia Facebook group saying that she used patterned tea towels to give her tired dining chairs an upgrade. DIY queen Jenny revealed that each tea towel cost just $3 and she was absolutely thrilled with the results!
Quick And Easy
Jenny says she used the popular ‘Native’ print tea towels and a staple gun to complete the project. “It was a lot easier to do than I thought,” she said. “So happy with the results!” Jenny shared a before and after photo, revealing that dining chairs were originally a dull beige colour that had become worn and stained, so the vibrant design of the tea towels gave them a whole new look. While Jenny’s choice may not be to everyone’s taste, Kmart has an extensive range of tea towels in a variety of prints and block colours so there is something to suit every home!
Comments on Jenny’s post said that the DIY idea was a clever way to refresh furniture. “Well done, it looks like a professional job,” said one Kmart mum. “Amazing! They look gorgeous! A job well done,” said another. We absolutely love this hack. What an easy way to save money and still update your dining room. Best of all, you can do it yourself for under $5 a chair – why not change them every year!?
