No Sew Wingback Chair Re-upholster
This old wingback chair was in need of an update. With no experience in upholstery, I dove right in and am thrilled with the result.
Assess the quality of the chair. This one had good bones, but the fabric and frame were worn. Disassembling the chair is by far the most time consuming and taxing part of the entire project.
Use the old stuffing if it's in decent shape. Then cover with your new fabric.
Push the fabric through the slots on the sides and bottom.
Then, pull it tight from the back. This is where you begin stapling and pulling. It takes a lot of playing around with it to get the fabric to lay just right.
It's so worth it when you are left with a beautiful, luxurious chair. Be sure to read the full tutorial on the blog: Charming Imperfections
