How To Upholster A Wooden Arm Chair - For The (Upholstery Beginner)

How To Upholster A Wooden Arm Chair - For The Upholstery Beginner I get many emails each week asking for advice on upholstering that first piece of furniture.  If you start small and gradually build up to more difficult pieces you will probably have less frustration and save money. Making the wrong cuts in your fabric, putting fabric on in the wrong order or choosing the wrong materials is costly. While upholstering a chair of this type you will learn to:  • Use upholstery tools. • Tear down. •  Install a base for springs. • Tie Springs. •  Pad up your project. • Measure and cut fabric.  • Center your fabric. • Attach your fabric. • Add cording. • Close the outside back. • Put on a dust cover.

How to Make Your Own Tufted Headboard

Start to finish to make your own upholstered, tufted-style headboard. For more information on how we made this, check out my blog here: We used a sheet of plywood, thick foam, quilt batting, fabric, roofing nails, and button cover kits to create a budget-friendly headboard for a large, king-sized bed. The headboard is mounted on the wall once it's assembled together. Watch again and read the details on this beauty on my blog!

Today, I took a shot at reupholstering a chair that I bought from Goodwill! I'm not an expert. I have not followed any instruction, nor have I done this before. I simply just paid attention to how I took it apart and put it back together in a similar way..but with my own twist! Enjoy!

FOR THE BACK OF THE CHAIR: I ended up using some hot glue to make sure that there would be a clean seam, but also would hold the fabric. Feel free to experiment with other adhesives and techniques!


Materials used:
-Chair (Goodwill)
-3 yards of upholstery fabric
-Paint (Paintbrushes, etc.)
-Heavy duty staple gun meant for 1/2" staples
-1/2" staples
-Decorative Rivets
-Hot glue/ Hot glue gun
*You may need to buy new batting depending on the condition of the old batting

*Disclaimer: the scene explaining how I did the back of the chair, unfortunately, got deleted. I'm sorry for the inconvenience, however, the whole purpose of trying something new is to learn and make mistakes. No matter what chair you have, it will most likely be different than the one I had and you'll have to try out new techniques to finish it anyway. This whole project for me was to get out of my comfort zone and learn a new skill without prior knowledge of how to upholster. I hope that you take chances on your own project as well. Be daring. Thank you for your overall support!
