Welcome to Thrifty Nifty Tutorial Tuesday

Todays tutorial is on chair recovering for beginers.

The Materials Needed:

  • Fabric (enough to cover the seat of your chair with extra for securing it)

  • Trim (enough to go around the seat of the chair)

  • Spray paint (if changing the color of the chair)

  • Upholstery Foam (if desired)

  • Glue gun

Step 1

Remove the seat of the chair usual by removeing some screws in my case there were four of them.
Step 2

Spray paint chair if desired.
Step 3

While chair is drying remove the old seat covering and remove all of the stapples. I used screwdriver and a pair of neddle nose pliers to do this.
Step 4

Hot glue the upolostry foam onto the seat of the chair.
Step 5

Hot glue the fabric onto the chair by placing the fabric on the table right side down. Then place the chair seat on top of foam down. Bring the edges up to the bottom of the seat an glue them down. Starting with one side then doing the side across from it. (note you may also staple the fabric to the chair)
Step 6

Folding the corners please refer to the following photos it is hard for me to explain.

Step 7

Continue folding and glue till all four sides are complete this is what it should look like:

Step 8

Glue your trim to the underside of the chair Seat.
Step 9

Screw the seat back on the chair and you are done.
