This hack used an Ikea KOLDBY rug to re-upholster a vintage mid-century modern chair. The old upholstered cushion served as a template, and the rug was simply cut to that shape with regular fabric shears/scissors. A pneumatic stapler was used to adhere the cowhide to the chair frame. The best part is that I still have tons of the KOLDBY left to use for other projects!
