How to reupholster a Leather Dining Chair

So, in the previous article i mainly focused on reupholstering chairs in general, now my main focus will be on reupholstering leather dining chairs.

This article will discuss how you can give your leather chair a new cover and bring it to life again. You will find that your padded leather chair will save you money and is much cheaper for you if you were to buy a new one. So what are we waiting for? For this project, you need a camera, pliers, batting, bugs, mallet, leather and fabric scissors and a stapler, all of which have prepared before you start.

begin by removing the existing nails from the chair with a needle nose pliers and take good care not to tear the fabric in the process, as this will be the model for the new coverage. If you do not have a camera, a mobile phone works just fine. While taking on the existing fabric, take pictures while you work, if you know exactly where to staple the new coating. Remove the stick of the old cushions, arms and back of the chair. And add the new stick of where the former was. Use a mallet hammer pins to attach the stick where it is safe and secure.

Once you have the old fabric off, extend it over to the new ones and follow the lines of the old fabric. leave 2 to 3 inches of excess when cutting the new form. Place the new fabric on the chair and safely staple the new ones, probably by the same process as when you took the fabric away, that's where the photos you took earlier come in. If you followed the steps where you have to remove the fabric just follow the same procedure to replace the cover and make sure that the leather is wrapped and stapled tight as you go along. And there you have it! You are now the proud owner of a new chair reupholstered leather dining chair.
