Project: Recovered Kitchen Chairs
I didn't remember how we (probably she) did these the last time, so I was interested to see that the seat juts unscrews from underneath, revealing a later of wood seat, a layer of foam, a fabric cover over the foam and then the top fabric. We added another layer of foam for a more comfortable seat, tracing the old foam and cutting the new out with scissors. The new cover was stacked with both pieces of foam and the wooden seat. The cover fabric just wraps around and staples underneath so there is no precision measuring required. We used a staple gun from the underside of the seat to staple it snugly on, then screwed it back onto the chair. Ta-da! And easy.
