First, find your old folding chairs. Mine were given to me by my parents who got them from a church 30 years ago. (I only found 3 pieces of gum stuck under them.)

Take sandpaper and lightly sand the chairs all over. Then wash them off real good.
Start spray painting. Use multiple light coats.
Place your seat cushions on top of your new fabric.
Cut the fabric so it's slightly bigger than the seat.
Pull up the edges and staple all around.
For the corners, I found it looked best just to pull the fabric towards the middle and staple instead of trying to do pleats or folds.
Cut away any excess fabric around your connectors.
Pop the seat cushions back in the holes using a hammer and VOILA!
I can't believe it took me years to do this. It was really quite simple.
