DIY: Reupholstering a dining room chair


I'll admit it. I reupholstered the first of four chairs before documenting the process. I wanted to make sure that 1) I could do it and 2) that there wasn't any blood. So now that I'm totally an expert in dining chair reupholstery, I will share my wisdom with you! Seriously–this is sooooooo easy it hurts. No skills required!

Supplies

-1 dining chair (with a cushion) in need of a fabric update

-1 yard of sturdy fabric per chair (cotton is fine, chiffon is not)

-1 heavy-duty staple gun/staples

-a phillips head screwdriver

-sharp scissors

-a large clean surface to work on (you don't want to get your pretty new cushion dirty!)

Instructions:

1. Remove the cushion from the chair frame by unscrewing it. Flip the chair over. It will be very obvious where to detach it.
