Chair Cover Tutorial

Finally I have made a tutorial on how to cover your desk chair.  It is amazing the difference you will see with a different cover.  It completely changes the chair.

You will need:
Fabric (about 2 yards)
Staple Gun

First you need to take the back cover off of your chair.  When I first did this I was very cautious to make sure the back would come off.  My chair was attached to the back by little plugs.

Once the back is off, now use your screwdriver and remove all the screws.

Then lay the fabric on the cushion.  Pull it to the back and staple.  Continue going all the way around the chair, making sure you pull the fabric tight.  Cut off the extra fabric.

 On the top cushion, attach back to the frame of the chair.

  Below is a picture of the bottom of the chair.  I cheated on this chair because I couldn't get all the screws off because they were warped, so instead I just pull all the way around the cushion.  Cut off the extra fabric so it doesn't hang down and you see it.

Next attach the back of the chair to the chair.  Make sure you press the back firmly so it pops back into the plugs.

Then set your chair back up and admire it.  You did an awesome job!
 You have an amazing chair that matches your classroom and loos great!

I hope you enjoy recreating your chair.

  5. If the back of my chair is able to be removed then this project is going to shoot to the top of my never ending "Project List" because I HATE my chair. It's burgundy and matches nothing in my room. Changing it up would make my day! Thanks for the tutorial!!
