6 MILLION DOLLAR CHAIR - upholstered white chair


This post is for my dear friend Bliss.
She requested some insights into chair upholstery,
but Bliss should know she would get a bit more than what she asked for.

 

Below is how our chair was found.


Ladies, we can rebuild her.
  

We have the technology.


We have the capability to build the world's best chair.


Our hero will be that chair.


Better than she was before.


Better,


stronger,


and more fascinating.


Okay enough of the open theme to the popular 70's show
The six million dollar man.


The toughest part to reupholstery I find is the tear down.
It's dirt and dangerous to your hands with all the old rusty nails and staples.


I use 2 manual staple guns loaded with different sized staples,
1/4 inch and 1/2 inch.


Keep in mind,
Not every piece has to be upholstered the same as the way you found it.

This chair was upholstered with a set of white quilted pillow shames found second hand,
and edged with new trim from the fabric store.

I know there are many of you out there with an upholstery project staring at you
wanting to know when you will get started. I'm no different.
