Materials Needed:

  • paint
  • paint brush
  • fabric

Step 1

Bring the chair to a professional upholsterer. You can rip off the fabric and paint the frame yourself to save a little money, or have your upholsterer paint for you. We used a high-gloss enamel.

Step 2

Our upholsterer added new foam to the seat cushion and back, and recovered it in cotton. Depending on the condition of the chair, you may not need new foam.
