I have one in my sewing room and it was looking a bit tired. The original cloth is stained and looks quite hideous. I have one of these chairs sitting in the hall and I want to cover it in a nice mushroom velvet to co-ordinate with what we are doing in that part of the house. So I thought I would give re-covering a go!
I put another layer of wadding over the top of the existing fabric and stretched the fabric over the base. Using my staple gun I attached the side of the selvage first and then the bottom side, and then each side. Probably not the most hard wearing fabric, but I love it!
