Why, yes, I would, thank you. The chairs I just refinished needed new seats. The fabric was OK, but it was so dirty. I wanted to replace the foam cushions, but I found out that was very pricey. I decided to keep the foam and add a layer of poly to protect it. I found the poly, and the fabric at Jo-Ann's and I had a 20% off coupon. Score!
The smaller chair only had some felting for a cushion, so I bought some foam (50% off!) and cut it to size. We used to own an electric knife, which is the best way to cut foam. I had to make do with a very expensive Cutco serrated knife. I am not sure that is covered under the warrantee. I also used a pair of scissors to clean things up. Then I gave up and covered it and decided no one would notice..
The seats were attached with four screws and the covers were attached with staples. This is a fairly easy project for an amateur. Hey! I'M an amateur! So I qualified.
The seats had 2 layers of fabric. They both came off. I used the foam as a template and cut the poly about 3 1/2 inches larger. I trimmed the corners so there would not be a big lump.
The wooden base held it in place. Then I put the wrapped package on top of the fabric and played around with it for WAAAAY too long. I didn't have a lot extra and couldn't afford to ruin a piece by cutting too small. I couldn't cut too big, because I had just enough. Measure...I don't know...about...5 times, cut once. That will be my new slogan.
Or how about this one, " I know the fabric is expensive, but buy extra so you won't go crazy." That might work.
The fabric had a direction so I also had to make sure I attached it with the fabric going properly, so the pictures weren't upside down!
On the first two seats, I stapled a couple of staples and then flipped it over to make sure I was doing it right. The staples are hard to get in, and even harder to get out.
I covered one of the screw holes with fabric and when Lee screwed it to the chair, it pulled a thread. We removed the seat, stretched the fabric to loosen the pulled thread and then cut the fabric at the hole. The problem was, a few of the holes were very close to the edge of the seat. So I had to cut holes in the fabric to accommodate the screws. And now I have to hope they don't unravel. Maybe I'll put some fingernail polish on the cut bits to prevent that. Or I might just forget about it because I am DONE with the chairs.
Don't they look nice? This isn't the finished placement. I'm still in the thinking and planning stages of decorating.
I still need more furniture and some tables to put the chairs near, but things are coming along.
And may I say, I love my cats. But they are not helpful when doing a craft project.
