Have an out-of-date or dingy upholstered chair seat that's seen too many spills? Our DIY Video shows you how to recover most chair cushions in just minutes - and get nice, crisp corners, too. Instructions a listed below.
Tools and Materials: Fabric, Chair Cushion, Staple Gun, Scissors and a Screwdriver (in most cases)
Step 1: Remove cushion from chair - you may need the screwdriver in this step
Step 2: Cut fabric, allowing at least 1" overlapping the seat base
Step 3: Center chair cushion on fabric and staple 1 staple on each side to secure fabric in position
Step 4: Staple fabric at corners. Start by pulling up the fabric at the point of the corner, then tuck, pull tight and staple a fold on each side of the corner. See how in the video above
Step 5: Once corners are complete, staple the sides, pulling the fabric snug. Insert staples about 1/2" to 1" apart
