Cover A Chair With Cushion And Fabric – Upholstering a chair cushion is one of the quickest and easiest ways to give a chair a new look, and if you use some thrift store fabric like I do, it’s very affordable.

Once the striped living room plywood floor change was done it freed me up to work on other living room projects, next up was a desk chair for my flower table.

It’s nothing fancy, but it’s in great shape, has a fabric seat, and is the perfect size for me and my desk.

I think it’s a dining room chair because my mom has a dining room chair from that era. My mother’s set has a light wooden surface.

The fabric seat was in good condition, no stains or odors, so I was able to go back to the existing chair seat. I checked it carefully before taking it home.

Not having to remove the fabric cover from the chair seat makes the project much easier, since removing the clips is extra work.

This chair was made here in Canada in 1985 but is still in business today by a very well known company called Palliser.

The first thing you should always do when removing the seat from the chair is remove the screws that hold the seam in place.

I’m painting the chair so I took it out to give it a nice light sand with a sanding pad.

You don’t have to go crazy with this as you only need to remove the top gloss.

After I got all the sand dust off the chair, I put it in and gave it 2 coats of restorative white and primer combo.

To upholster a chair, all you need is the fabric of your choice, a staple gun and scissors.

Whenever I choose fabrics, furniture, art, accessories, or anything else for a room…I remind myself that things don’t have to go together.

In my opinion, being appropriate does not reveal the personality of your room, only your personality.

The reason I chose this floral pattern is because it ties in several colors with the tablecloth, pink and green, but it doesn’t match.

Because I wanted to place the pattern on my seat a certain way, I placed the seat directly under the fabric layer.

If you don’t mind, or if you’re using a small pattern or solid color, you can place the seat on top of the fabric and cut accordingly.

When you put the seat back on, start by gluing it in the center of all four sides.

Then pull tight and pinch, working from the center to the corners.

Pull the fabric once like this and look at the corner of the chair seat.

Then you pull the fabric two more times, always checking how the corner looks.

This is how the corner looks from above, neat and tidy and follows the contours of the seat perfectly.

Don’t worry if it’s not perfect. If you see small wrinkles, you won’t notice them when you put the seat on the chair.

Once you’ve stapled your fabric, use a hammer to make sure the staples are nice and tight.

Now if I ever need to replace said fabric, I won’t repaint the chair…just restore the seat.

Diy Upholstery Is Easier Than You Think

Here is the newly restored chair with my desk. All I have to do now is add those cork things to the bottom of the leg so they don’t scratch the floor.

This is the perfect chair for this desk, as I like to sit cross-legged while working on my laptop, and the pull-out section of the desk is just the right height to do so.

If you have chairs like these that need a quick makeover, this is an easy way to give them a complete makeover. Back in November I showed you my daughter’s newly finished room and said I’d let you know how I did a “cheat job” of reupholstering. his chair

I gathered scraps of fabric and worked out which pieces I wanted to use until I was happy with the layout.

I started with the back panel and trimmed my fabric a bit more around the edges. I probably left 8-12″ on the sides and bottom and only about 2″ at the top. I folded the top edge and twisted it with my fingers, then put hot glue under the fold and tucked it under the yarn. Believe it or not, hot glue does a great job of attaching fabric!

I left more fabric on the sides and bottom because I could push those pieces back (between the back and sides) and they stayed put. It was helpful to use an old butter knife to slide the fabric around some tight edges like this. I didn’t want to pull the fabric when someone was sitting in the chair, I was able to fill it with most of it and it stayed in place very well.

To cover the arms, I did the same thing, folding in each exposed side, carefully pinning each end, and tucking the string down as close as possible. When I got to the back of the arm and the bottom edge of the seat, I tucked the excess fabric into these gaps.

I don’t have a picture of this piece, but her toe has yellow bits attached to the bottom with little fancy ribbons. I attached them with a screwdriver, but they were attached to the bottom (so the curved part folded like a flap). Then I made a neat fold at the bottom edge, folded the fabric back and glued the edges. I flipped the “flap” back up and pushed the pins back into place. The pieces were a little loose, so I went back with the hot glue and pressed the pieces down firmly until they were dry. perfect

Back and Arms… Everything between the back pad and the side arms, arms and underarms is just extra fabric that is firmly attached. So far I haven’t had to return anything and it’s nice and comfortable.

Chevron tape is similar, cut roughly to size, then folded and stapled around all edges. I went back a few inches under the pillow and taped the rest together with the twine. For the skirt, I roughly doubled the measurement around the chair and placed it on the skirt. I then cut it out by stapling the corners and the center on each side first.

Then I gathered the pleats once again under the cord with the loose fabric between the staples. This part of the chair had a hard surface underneath, so I used a main weapon whenever it worked.

To hide the raw edge of the hem, I attached the hem and ribbon and a thin black and white ribbon balanced the other side of the cord.
