A video tutorial on how to easily reupholster the seat cushion of a chair. An easy way to bring life back to your existing dining chairs or to renew a set of chairs purchased at an antique store or flea market. I had pieces of foam cut to size at a foam shop that were dense and a 1 inch thickness. Glue the foam down to the exisiting seat - you may remove the current seat covers if you like. Allow the glue to dry. Choose a material that is of upholstery durability (you don't need to spend a lot of money!). Cut your material to the shape to the seats leaving about 6 inches extra on either side. Place your material face down on you working surface, and then the seat with foam face down, on top of your material. Pull up tightly on your material, in the middle and, using a staple gun, place a staple in this middle point. Do this for all four sides. Then, work your way from each side, always pulling up tightly on the material and place your staple almost to each corner. Once all of your side are complete, cut of about 2 inches of excess material from the corners. Gather your corners as tightly as possible and secure with 3 to 4 staples. Complete all 4 corners and you are complete!
