Learn how to decoupage furniture with fabric with this detailed tutorial! It allows you to get the look of upholstery without the expense!

Hello lovely readers!  Have you ever wondered how you can add some interest to furniture without painting it? I mean, paint is GREAT (I love it), but sometimes you want to do something other than paint furniture. Well, this tutorial my friends, will teach you how to decoupage furniture! This is one of my FAVORITE projects EVER.  You can essentially “upholster” a wooden chair with fabric and Mod Podge!



  • Fabric (you can purchase the fabric I used here). The amount you need depends on the size of your chair and how you want to position the pattern. I used around 1 yard.
  • A basic wood chair (I found the one I used for only $44.00–here is a link to the exact chair I used for this project).  If I had more time, I would have checked out some consignment stores where I bet I could have found one for even less!
  • Matte Mod Podge
  • Spray paint (if desired–I spray painted the silver metal with gold spray paint)
  • Exacto knife
  • Foam paint brush

Armed with my fabric and my chair, I created THIS beautiful chair!

Did you know you can decoupage furniture to get an "upholstered" look on a tiny budget? Come check out how to "upholster" a chair with Mod Podge and fabric!
