|Seat of thrift store chair|
When you're selecting furniture that you plan to change, make sure that you make things easy on yourself. For example, if you're looking to change a chair cushion, make sure that it is a seat has a bottom that can be unscrewed. Like so:
What you will need when re-upholstering a seat cushion:
1. Batting ( can be found at any store where fabrics are sold)
2. Foam ( can be found at any store where fabrics are sold)
3. Fabric ( you can also find this where fabrics are sold)
4. Staple Gun
5. Pencil or pen
8. Needlenose pliers or staple remover
Step 1: Remove seat cushion from chair with screwdriver. Make sure you save the screws if you plan to use them again, or save at least 1 so you can find new screws in the same style.
Step 2: Remove existing staples with pliers
Step 4: Trace the seat for the foam and cut the batting in a square, leaving about 4 inches on each side
Step 5: Fit foam, batting and fabric over the seat like you're wrapping a present, securing each layer before adding the other, and remember to trim off excess fabric.
Step 6: After securing the four corners, move around the seat and make sure there are no wrinkles and secure with staples.
Et Voila! You've made yourself a chair cushion, sista!
