Painted and Upholstered Wingback Chair


I recently picked up this gorgeous carved chair that had a beautiful shape but ratty fabric. I decided to paint and reupholster it. You can see the entire process with instructions at http://www.diyhomeinterior.com/painted-and-upholstered-wingback-chair-reveal/

The fabric and staples were carefully ripped off using just a set of needle nose pliers.

The chair completely stripped of fabric and staples.

I painted all of the wood with my black homemade chalk paint.

After attaching all the fabric, I hot glued the trim onto the edges with staples showing.

    I have 2 wingbacks that have material covered arms that need recovering. They're my favorite kind of chairs.

    Outstanding results! I am ready to redo my dining room chairs - had a terrible time with the electric stapler. It just wasn't a good model. What brand and model type stapler did you use, Misty?
