How to re-upholster a (dining) chair is very easy and even more, if you have the right tools but don’t worry the basic tools will do the trick.
Things you need:
1. fabric of your choice
In this case since the chair pad has a lot of stains, I had to cover it with white fabric before putting my plastic cover. Otherwise the result will not be satisfactory. I chose plastic/vinyl aka table cloth so the dirt won’t stick to it and easy to clean.
2. Staple Gun and lots of staple gun wires – a MUST
4. Screw Driver – a MUST.
5. Drill – optional
Step 1. Unscrew the chair pad
Step 2. Remove all the staple wires
You need lots of patience…the staple wires for just one chair.
Step 3. Place the chair pad on top of the fabric. Leave at least 4 inches allowance for all sides. Cut.
Step 4. flip the chair pad. front pad facing down and start stapling
Step 5. Cut the excess.
Step 6. Screw it back to the chair frame
The old and new…
