Materials Needed

  • fabric
  • paint
  • paintbrush

Step 1

Bring the chair to a professional upholsterer. To save a little money, you can rip off the old fabric and paint the frame yourself. We used a semi-gloss latex paint.

Step 2

Our upholsterer plumped up the seat and back with new foam, then covered the chair in upholstery-weight cotton canvas and added a double-welt trim.
