Upholstering the side chairs
After the chairs were glued and cleaned I recovered the seats with new fabric that the customer picked out. I have shown the process and the finished product below.
The first step was to remove the old fabric .
The new fabric is measured and cut. The fabric is tacked to the seat.
Tacks are removed and staples put in place. After the cuts are made black polyester fabric covers the underside of the chairs.
