How To Cover Up A Torn Chair – I’m so excited to share a behind-the-scenes look at my latest upholstery project! These antique chairs needed some TLC. We cleaned them, refinished the wood frame, replaced the suspension and cushions and reupholstered them in beautiful custom leather that you have to see to believe! We have done all this while maintaining the good old quality and keeping in mind the overall beauty of the home. Just in time for Thanksgiving, these freshly made chairs are sure to be a hit at the dinner table! Special thanks to my favorite upholstery shop Covers Unlimited and leather source Garrett Leather for being valuable partners in this project!

Really unique, these chairs were originally upholstered in giraffe skin! The seats really needed work as the leathers were stiff, cracked and torn making them incredibly uncomfortable to sit on. Covers Unlimited carefully removed the old skins as my client wanted to save materials for a reworked project. During the removal, special care was taken for the tree.

Then the wooden frames needed some attention. We didn’t do a full repair, just a basic wood repair. The existing wood surface was in good shape, with a few nicks here and there. Some of the seat frames were cracked and needed to be repaired with wood. Covers Unlimited has taken care of the damaged areas while maintaining the classic quality. All seats feature new, long-lasting, highly flexible foam suspension and padding. I really appreciated their attention to detail.

One of the best things about working with Covers Unlimited is the dedicated project manager who works alongside the interior designers. Design Project Manager Susan Rix has a long history of design and an amazing eye for detail! I like to trust that my customers’ furniture is in good hands.

One of my favorite parts of my job is introducing my customers to great and innovative products that they have never thought of. Part of that process is educating my customers about quality, value, and what makes one product different from another. The skin is especially complicated. Quality and quality of leather can be difficult to understand.

For this project, we wanted something that would be easy to clean, age naturally, and complement the classic features. We started with rich espresso tones, worked our way up to burgundy, but finally settled on a deep plum color that complements the other colors and finishes the room. To give it an even more unique look and feel, we checked out a few impressive designs from Garrett. We chose a pattern that matches the scale of the oriental rugs and goes well with the other motifs in the room. We chose the Journey Majestic Mountain with Garrett Leather with Impress soles.

When ordering leather, it’s always a good idea to order a coordinating paint job. Since leather is a natural material, each leather may wear a different color than the last. A CFA is a small piece that is precisely cut from the skin that you order. This allows you to preview the leather and make sure you are happy with its color and texture before placing your order. After authorizing the cuts, we ordered a strike. Strikethrough is a great example of our approved leather/paint area. Our pull size was about 12”x12”, which allowed my client to get a good look at the swatch of the chosen leather color.

The moment we’ve all been waiting for is finally here and we’re releasing a new skin! We’ve been looking at small samples for the past 2 months and we still haven’t seen the full skin of our new skin. When the leather arrived, I went to Covers Unlimited to check and talk to Susan about how to put the pattern on the seats, making sure to pay attention to the lines and repetition of the tiles.

Upholstered Chairs and Customer Testimonials “Upholstering my dining room chairs completely improved my dining room! I didn’t know that changing one thing could change the whole room. When I started the process, I knew I wanted a tan, but I only thought “medium tan”. Sarah brought me pattern books and I discovered a whole new world of colors and textures! He taught me about the different qualities of leather, leather colors and how leather ages over time. He helped me narrow down my options based on our family’s needs and budget. He handled everything from ordering the leather to coordinating the delivery of the chairs. He checked everything and made sure we were approved every step of the way. He expedited the entire process and even delivered our beautiful custom chairs 2 weeks ahead of schedule! My dining room set is antique, machine style, golden oak. Sarah’s attention to detail and sensitivity to not only the individual items, but the overall feel and beauty of our home helped restore the set to its original beauty. I highly recommend Sarah to anyone who needs help with their home.

Regardless of the type of upholstery the sofa is made of, rips in the cushions should be repaired as soon as possible. Cracks that aren’t repaired quickly can continue to rip, fill with leaks, or, if left untreated, ruin the entire sofa cushion. If you accidentally spill a tear on a pillow, a 30-second fix will provide, while a permanent tear fix will prevent further damage. Fortunately, after learning the simple repair process, the damaged area can be repaired permanently.

Instead of spending $37+ each and assembling my patio chairs, I covered them with slats for about $11.

The weather has reached the seat belts of my porch. Some sites were charging around $37 for one return strap (see links below). Or a total of $148+ for 4 seats and my work. I checked out Sling Masters ( a few websites and a great YouTube video. After seeing what it’s like to measure, order, wait, install, I decided to hit mine again.

If you want to do what I did, for each chair you will need approximately (depending on the style of the chair and the number of chairs – I have 4):

All supplies are from Home Depot and cost around $100. If you already have the paint or stain, you can make 4 chairs for about $60. I like thrift, weathered wood and painted it my wife’s favorite color. The latter buys benefits worth $100 spent.

To determine how much wood to buy, you need to take some measurements and calculate as follows. My chair is 20-1/4″ wide and 51″ tall. I used a soft tape so I could accurately measure the length of the frame.

Note that 1″x3″ is about 2-1/2″ wide. So take the length of the seat and divide it by 2.5. That’s how many slats you need. Mine is 51/2, 5 = 20 ,4 Round up 21 slats are required.

Each slat is determined by the width of the seat. So multiply all the previously calculated slats in width. Mine is 20-1/4 x 21 = 425.25. That’s the 1×3 inch line I needed.

But I need to know how many boards to buy. We switch to legs and get the number of boards. 425.25 / 12 = 35.43 linear feet required. Table length 35.43 / 8 feet =
