This tutorial shows how to reupholster dining chairs. Grab some chairs from your basement, a garage sale, or thrift store and with a little DIY, change them into beautiful, “new” dining chairs!
Step 11. I pulled the Cushion of the chair, and the back detailing easily came off. Followed by a quick clean.
Step 22. i sanded down the chairs because the paint was a bit scratched up and i wanted my finish to be as even as possible.
Step 33. I spray painted the chairs black using between 2-3 coats, left for drying time then followed by the clear acrylic coat to prevent scratches.
Step 44. While the chairs were drying i worked on my cushions. I pulled out all the previous staples, yanked the fabric off so that i had a clean slate.
Step 55. i stapled on my fabric, make sure you pull it tight you don't want creases or looseness in your fabric. I also covered the base of the cushion with a plain black fabric just to cover up the unsightly wood.
Step 66. Screw the cushion back on and hey presto you have yourself a brand new chair which suits your personality. Pick a Fabric that you love and is going to suit your style, that way you wont have to replace it till it gets old and ratty.
