DIY Video: How to Recover a Chair Cushion in Kid-Friendly Fabric

Have an out-of-date or dingy upholstered chair seat that's seen too many spills?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
  • Step 6: Trim fabric, leaving about 1/2" allowance to prevent fabric ripping out
  • Step 7: Reattach newly-covered cushion to chair - and Enjoy!
