Reupholstered Dining Room Chairs

Brian looked skeptical when I first told him I was reupholstering the dining room chairs.
Rightfully so, I may add. (I don't have any experience in reupholstery).

Here are some BEFORE photos:




Brian actually liked the fabric that was originally on the chairs.
That was my first clue.
This fabric had to go.

So, I watched four or five YouTube videos on reupholstering chairs and then went to town. Overall, the task was surprisingly easy.

My completed job looks good, although I can't exactly say it's of professional quality. I lack this thing called Upper Body Strength, which is needed when trying to use a staple gun while holding fabric taut.

My staples are only stapled about half way into the chair.

If you were to flip over the chairs and really analyze 'em, you would likely think my reupholstery job looked shitty.

But who will ever flip over and analyze my dining room chairs, and then point out all the flaws?

But who, other than Brian, will ever flip over and analyze my dining room chairs, and then point out all the flaws?

Exactly. No one.

So I'm proud of my work. Even if it's not professional quality.

The new chairs are green and white (see below).






OK, that's the end of this post.

If you like the old chairs better than my new reupholstered chairs, just leave me a comment so that I can be sure to defriend you on Facebook and loathe you forever.
