As you know, we’re slowly working on transforming our oldest daughter’s room. One of the things she has insisted on keeping is her
ugly bean bag chair. As much as I tried to dissuade her from it, she persisted. She does use it a lot for reading and writing, so I tried my best to transform her gross old bean bag chair from drab to fab.
Inspired by the picture below, I decided to use my fuzzy pink fabric that was leftover from a pillow project from years ago. I also used this in my Romantic Fireside Picnic post, featured here. I’m so glad to have finally found a way to use it in another project.
Here is the adorable inspiration bean bag chair, but I wasn’t a fan of the price tag. Luckily I had some fabric on hand to use for my project. Courtesy: http://www.houzz.com/photos/304104/Furlicious-Beanbag-contemporary-bean-bag-chairs

Here’s how the bean bag chair looked initially. Totally Drab with a capital “D”.
I literally just took the fabric, laid it out on the floor, and then wrapped the bean bag chair like a christmas present (even folding the ends), and hand sewed the cover in place. The process was so simple and straightforward, it didn’t occur to me to take pictures. Lol. It took me about 25 minutes.
Here is the covered bean bag. I formed a little peak at the top to make it more comfy to sit in.
I added a cute cushion to give it a bit of a Paris flair.
That’s it for the mid-week post about recovering an old worn out bean bag chair. I’ll be back on Saturday with a new post. See you then 🙂
