Floating lounge chair – Many times just add new clothes to your outdoor furniture, such as a chaise longue, all you need to add some new flare. There is no need to buy a new chaise longue when you can only reupholster the pillows. Also making your own pillows will probably be cheaper than buying new ones, and you may add your own personality to the job. If you can use a sewing machine and sew a straight line, you can dress your chaise longue. Here are some tips for getting started.
Take measurements of the width, depth and length of the old pillows if you have them. Many times if the floating lounge chair has been sitting in the elements, you have to change the foam parts. If the old pillows are in good shape, you can still use them for this new project by reupholstering them. If you do not have the pillows, measure the area of the chair where the pillows will be.
For example, if your floating lounge chair is 6 feet tall and 24 inches wide, you have to buy a foam insert that is the same size, with about a 3 to 4 inch replacement for the depth. It is your own personal choice if you want to remove the old coat or cover it with new fabric. If it’s old and weather worn, it’s probably best to remove it. Write down the amount of fabric you need to wear the pillows. Considering you will have at least 1 to 2-inch seams and the thickness of the pillow. Otherwise, you will end up with a piece of fabric that is long and wide enough, but will not be able to cover the sides of the pillow.
