DIY | How to Reupholster Mid-Century Chairs

So I am going to try to be short as far as words go and give you guys the steps and the tools that I used to accomplish this. These are mid-century chairs that I found on the app called LetGo. After negotiating a bit we got three of these beauties for $26 each which is incredible because these chairs are about $200 to $250 a piece. We wanted to just change the fabric on the cushions to match the theme of our dinning room. So obviously, we went with a modern teal although on the pictures it looks lighter than it is, but I love how that color fabric makes the leather stand out more. 



LIST OF SUPPLIES:

1. FABRIC

2. SCISSORS

3. STAPLE GUN

4. FABRIC PINS

5. UPHOLSTERING THREAD

6. CURVED NEEDLE








STEP 1: TAKE OFF THE CUSHIONS.

STEP 2: MEASURE OUT THE FABRIC BY LAYING THE CUSHION OVER THE FABRIC.


STEP 3: STAPLE THE BACKSIDE OF THE CUSHION BY STAPLING FIRST THE MIDDLE TO MAKE SURE THAT THE FABRIC STAYS ALIGNED.




STEP 4: Make sure that you have a cm of fabric going all the way around and pin all the way around.


STEP 5: Make sure that the corners are tucked in properly. You might have to cut some access fabric so it is not bulky when you lay it down.


STEP 6: Once the cushion is pinned all the way around, make sure that all corners are straight.

STEP 7: Using the upholstery thread and a curved needle, sow as close to the leather trim as possible.


I hope you guys will find this very helpful. Let me know if you are doing a similar project by commenting below!
