- Fabric (preferably plain)
- Staple gun
- Stanley knife
First think about which part of the chair you want to upholster. If this is the entire seat, take the chair apart (as far as possible).
Take the fabric off the chair. In most cases you can remove the fabric by hand. Should this not be the case? In that case we advise you to use a Stanley knife and remove the fabric from the chair as completely as possible.
Then put the old fabric on top of the new fabric. Report pins can be used to secure the old fabric to the new fabric.
When the old fabric is securely attached you can easily cut the new fabric. Attention! If you are going to cut the new fabric, we recommend that you do this extra wide around the old fabric.
Put the new piece of fabric on the floor, and put the seat upside down.
Attach the fabric to the seat with the staple gun. Do this on one side first.
Then pull the other side of the fabric tight, and staple the second side as well.
Repeat step 7 for all other parts of the seat.
Make sure that the fabric is securely attached everywhere. Is that the case? Then you can reattach the seat. That’s it!
