How to Reupholster a Chair Seat




I found this old chair at the Goodwill a few weeks ago for 4 bucks,
and in my eyes the only thing it really needed was new fabric.


Step 1: Take off the seat.



Step 2: Choose your fabric. (I chose to cover it in white first, only because I was afraid my fun fabric was too thin...and the green might show through. Normally you probably wouldn't need to do this...)



Step 3: Cut enough fabric to allow roughly 2.5 to 3 inches on each side.



Step 4: Firmly staple the middle on each side.



Step 5: Work your way around tugging lightly and stapling the fabric in place.


(The corners get thick and bunchy fast. Maneuver it around the best way you can so that the least amount of folds show on the seat sides.)

 


I did the same exact thing with my fun fabric, right on top of the white.


Then happily screwed it back on my chair.
