Not long ago, I posted a chair that I had recovered and said it was probably the first and last chair I would upholster. I know, I know, never say never. But, when I saw this one at an estate sale, it didn't look as though the difficulty level would be as high!
The chair was in great condition except for this stain...
Plus, I wasn't fond of the fabric.
So, why not try recovering just one more chair?
I started by removing the fabric underneath the chair to unscrew the seat from the chair...
Once the seat was removed, I pulled off the cording...
Then I pulled off the fabric...
I gave the dark wood a coat of paint I had leftover from an old project.
For the front of the chair, I used the fabric that I had removed to make a pattern. But for the back, I found that it worked better to staple on a larger piece of fabric then cut away the excess. The fabric I chose is called Paisley Prism by Waverly.
Some of the staples had to hammered in a little.
I covered the staples with trim using E6000.
Once the trim was on, I covered the seat
and screwed it back onto the chair.
After finishing this upholstered chair, I will NOT say that I will never recover a chair. As a matter of fact, I'm pretty sure that I will tackle another. After all, practice makes perfect!
