Materials Needed

  • 1/4-inch thick piece of plywood
  • batting
  • muslin
  • staple gun
  • cloth napkins

Step 1

Unhook the seat from the chair frame.

Step 2

Cut a 1/4-inch-thick piece of plywood slightly smaller than the size of the seat, or have a home improvement store do it for you. Cut several pieces of batting the same size as the seat.

Step 3

Place the wood on top of the seat, followed by the batting, then a large piece of muslin. Flip the stack upside down. Use a staple gun to fasten the muslin to the underside of the seat, pulling it tight as you go. Trim excess muslin.

Step 4

Flip the seat right-side up and place a napkin over the muslin. Flip the seat over again to staple the napkin to the underside of the seat, then reattach the seat to the chair.
