Got a tired old chair that needs a little pick-me-up? Here’s your chance to transform your old desk chair, bar chair or dining chair into a work of art! In this class we’ll take your chair from faded to fabulous with painting + fabric & paper collage.
- You’ll get the recipe & learn how to make homemade lavender glue (non-toxic and smells nice too!)
- Simple slip-seat upholstery techniques will be covered if needed.
- You can paint right on your upholstery, paint a separate piece of fabric to staple on the seat, or wrap your chair frame in lovely colors, fabric & pictures. Or all of the above!
Go wild and explore your creative muse! We’ll work quickly to avoid over-thinking the result – this will be an exercise in spontaneity. One of the best things about this class is the infusion of brainstorming & idea-sharing with others in the class. You’ll be swept up in the collaborative energy of the workspace. We look forward to incorporating your unique creative spirit!

What kind of chair should I bring? There are SO many different kinds of chairs, so let’s try to narrow it down a bit: for a 3-hour class, you probably want to keep it pretty simple. That’s why we suggest a dining chair, bar chair or desk chair. But maybe you have a bigger chair that you think you can do in that time-frame, or a totally off-the-wall idea that you want to bring. Just send a photo and let’s see what we can do! (see Carla’s contact info below)
Don’t have a chair? Let us know and we’ll have one available for you to take home for $5-15.
Not sure if your chair ‘fits’ the class? Email carla(at)livinghomefurniture(dot)com, or text a photo to Carla (406.223.3834) for a quick answer (in your text, be sure to include your name and ‘Paper Airplane Class’ in your message).
Woo Hoo! Looking forward to meeting you and having some fun!
