I have been noticing more and more people tackling DIY reupholstery projects. Reupholstering isn’t as difficult as it seems in fact, with a little know how and the right tools, it’s actually fairly simple. I have rounded up a few projects from my blogger buddies as well as our own.
Lets start with our wingback chairs I reupholstered last summer. Image courtesy of Woman’s Day.
This was my first upholstery project below. Not only was it my first upholstery project, it was the first time I sawzalled a couch in half. It will probably be my only time as well. ha
Brittany at Pretty Handy Girl has a fabulous tutorial on how to reupholster a bench cushion.
Vanessa at The Picket Fence shares how to create a drop cloth slipcover for a dining room chair.
A few months ago I shared a tutorial on how I reupholstered my mom’s dining room chairs.
A couple weeks ago I shared how to reupholster a couch the “no sew” way.
I prefer to use a power staple gun with 1/4″ staples for our projects. Although, a heavy duty staple gun would likely work for many upholstery projects. Most of these projects can be completed in a weekend, if not an afternoon. I am not sure if I have any DIY reupholstery projects in the near future but you never know!
