We have had these chairs for quite some time. They hang out around our dining room table. And I am always a little (or a lot) embarrassed to have people sit on them. The fabric is dated and stained. Oh, it hasn’t been pretty.
Re-covering those chairs has been on my to-do list for a long time. I finally found some fabric I liked, grabbed a staple gun, a pair of pliers, and some scissors, and went to work.
Twenty minutes later, okay – 30 minutes later since I had to stop every couple minutes to chase my three chickens off the deck, I had newly recovered chairs.
It was even easier than I had thought. It was a simple unscrewing of the seat off the base, ripping off the old fabric, using it to cut the new, then stapling it to the base. Reattach, then voilá.
For $10 worth of fabric, I am so very happy with my newly recovered chairs. And, if I get tired of the new fabric, I can easily do it again. Try this at home. I think you’ll like it.
