Remember way back when I recovered my dining room chairs?
What the heck was I thinking?! Pale yellow fabric on my DINING room chairs that we eat at EVERY day for EVERY meal with THREE children!
Yeah, they didn't last long. Big surprise, huh? I bought new fabric eons ago, but finally with Thanksgiving looming I decided to recover them so my guests wouldn't be afraid to sit on my chairs. They were THAT nasty. Don't worry, I'm sparing you a picture of them.
Recovering dining chairs is one of the simplest reupholstery projects around. I think I've done mine about 4 times now and like I say, if I can do it than anyone can!
First, you need to remove the seat from the chair by unscrewing the seat from the bottom. Then, using pliers and a flat head screwdriver, pry off the staples to remove the fabric to use as a pattern for your new covers.
