The New Adventures of the Old Dinning Table – Chair Re-Covery

Before and After

The hard part of this project was actually doing it. Once I decided on the fabric and set aside some time, it was so easy.


  • new fabric
  • upholstery foam
  • scissors, utility knife
  • screwdriver
  • staple gun

I just flipped over the chairs and removed the screws that held the seat in place. I then used a flat-head screwdriver to remove the old staples.  I used the seat as a template to cut the foam, and the old fabric as the template for the new fabric. After wrapping the foam-covered seat in fabric and re-assembling the chair, I was done! Repeat six times, and now I have a beautiful “new” dinning set!
