Faux Fur Chair for a Teen Retreat

Therese of Fresh Idea Studio finally wrapped up a project that she had promised her oldest daughter over six months ago – a “furlicious” chair that will actually make your kids want to sit and do their homework! Therese simply covered an existing desk chair with a faux fur rug from IKEA. This isn’t some difficult upholstery project only an experience seamstress can pull off. Therese’s genius in using the rug makes the process so simple, and she even suggests skipping the needle and thread altogether and using hot glue if that’s more your speed.

The original inspiration came from the Furlicious Argo Chair from PB Teen.
