During this blog, I will demonstrate how to recover a drop in dining chair.
I used 27″ square of fabric per chair bottom, adhesive, 1″ foam, staple gun and staples. The fabric used was Fran Tan.
Always the first step in recovering a dining room chair is to remove existing fabric. Next take a good look at your foam and determine if it needs replacing, I decided these bottoms just needed a little extra softness so I added some more foam.
After I had removed all fabric and cut an additional piece of foam, I sprayed a good amount of spray adhesive to the old foam and added the new 1″ piece of foam on top. As you
can see in the photo I used a good amount of the adhesive.
Now it’s time to add your fabric. I start by placing a staple in loosely to the center of all four sides. This will help hold your fabric in the position you have decided the fabric
needs to lay.
As you move around your chair bottom make sure to pull, smooth and staple will keeping the same tightness.
Always make sure to fold your corners neatly and toward to back of the chair bottom.
Recovering chair bottoms are a great way to update your dining room in a few hours.
