OMG, this upholstery tutorial is amazing

You may have seen this tutorial on Apartment Therapy yesterday...

A multi-part tutorial for how to reupholster a chair the right way... that makes it sound so easy!  I've never known how it was done before but now I get it.  The pics and thorough instructions are so helpful.

Can't wait to try this on a chair I've had for a while, although I don't have time right now.  But I had no idea it was so easy!

Have any of you ever attempted such an elaborate recovering project?


  1. I just bookmarked the tutorial. I'm definitely going to try this! I have a vintage chair that is gorgeous but the upholestry is dated and damaged.

  2. There was another one yesterday on design sponge which was also fantastic.

  3. Ooh, you're right, @banclothing! Here it is: http://www.designsponge.com/2011/10/upholstery-basics-coil-seat-finale.html

    It's a little simpler than the one I posted pics of, but great for a bottom seat only chair.

  4. My only experience reupholstering something was when I worked in my school's costume shop: we were redoing chairs for an off-broadway show, and it was summer in a non-air conditioned prop room, miserable! I had to man a giant curved needle and a staple gun. Ever since then, I've stayed away...

    But this tutorial may make me want to try again, especially now that I'm in the NW and not in NYC humidity.

  5. Awesome it looks so difficult but you said that it was simple and easy definitely gonna give it a try on my old sofa

  6. You are right indeed. The tutorial is amazing. I went from zero to know-how after watching it.
