I decided to re-upholster my chair. Who has time for baby steps? Lol
About a year ago, I bought this old fashion chair for our living room because at the time we only had a 1 couch for everybody who ever came over to sit on. And if 5 people decided to come by that day.... 2 people wouldn't have a place to sit. The chair is pretty sturdy and feels good to sit in, it just looked fugly.
After about a year of undecided feelings, mixed in with life and new found time on my hands I finally pulled the trigger on attempting to re-fabric the chair. After doing some research and purchasing the fabric, I started the daunting task of taking off the fabric.
I will not lie to you, this is (in my opinion) the HARDEST part of the entire project! I promise their had to be like 10,000 staples in this chair and they were in the oddest places. What was more frustrating was that just when I thought I was finished pulling them all.... I would find another :(
I read that it's best to pay attention to how the fabric came off, so that you know how to put the new fabric on. There were some areas that I couldn't remember so I had to wing it.... oh well. Once I stripped all the old fabric, I simply placed the patterns against my new fabric and cut it to fit. After that I ironed my fabric so that is was wrinkle free, and began covering the chair section by section..... VOILA!
Not bad for my first time, right?
I can't wait to attempt another diy craft! :)
