Flexsteel Captains Swivel Chairs


Ways on Re-Purposing Your Flexsteel Captains Swivel Chairs

Step 1. Turn an old chair into a planter by removing the seat and adding a potting tray. Fill with dirt, plant your favourite flowers or herbs and then place on the patio for some indoor/outdoor living!

Step 2. Add cushions to create a cosy couch in one of those out of the way spots where no furniture ever seems to fit.

Step 3. Add a cushion to the bottom of the chair for extra seating in a pinch!

Step 4. Use as an ottoman, footstool, or coffee table with tray top (great idea for an office!)

Step 5. Turn into a toy box by removing the seat and covering a remaining area with fabric – how about adding some storage pockets?

Step 6. Convert into a reading nook with pillows and blankets.


How do you remove an RV captain chair?

To remove an RV captain chair, start by removing the seat. Then, unscrew and take off the armrests that are screwed on with nuts from the inside of the base of each side panel near where your feet would go to rest when sitting in it.

Pry open a gap at one end of how you would sit if placing back down the seat you just removed. If at a corner, open one gap on either side of how you would sit for both ends by wedging your fingers in there and pushing back away from the corners to pry it open.

Place something soft like an old towel or cloth down inside the opening so that when sitting again after re-assembling with the seat how it was before, you’re not sitting on something hard and rough.
