Reupholstering a Chair for the Guest Room - Part 2

 Time to tear things up!  This is one of the most tedious things on this project.. but for me it was the funnest!  You get to tear things up? Yes please!  I don't know why but breaking things/tearing things up always make you feel a little better, am I right?

Let us begin!

You will need:

  • A chair! - Preferably something your not afraid to tear up.
  • Pliers - Needle nose helps.
  • Fabric
  • Stapler
  • Sewing Machine or Needle and Thread
  • Flat head screw driver
  • Primer
  • Paint

Here is where we started.

If you notice I put down a sheet, this is to catch all the icky stuff that comes out of the chair. (If you also notice the dirty floor that is from mudding, yes I have mopped, three times!! Anyone have any idea how to get it clean?)
