Interior Design for the Dining Room : How to Recover a Chair


My name is Judy Williams representing expertvillage.com,
and today we are talking about different ways to decorate your dining room. I’m going to
demonstrate recovering a chair cushion. When I decided to redecorate this room, I still
liked the fabric, which was a just a cotton glow sheen, but I wanted something a little
elegant, which I was just ready for something new. You will notice that basically I have
the same colors; it is just that I put them into a stripe. They are closer together so
they seem more dynamic. So going to this flower to this stripe fabric. All you really need
is a staple gun and staples and a screw driver for this job. Most chairs just have screws
that are right here, and you unscrew each one and remove your cushion. And I’m just
showing you how right now where they are located. Now I have cut my fabric; it takes a yard
in a half to two yards of 54 inch upholstery fabric to cover 6 chairs. Again depending
upon your width and the depth of your chair or the depth of your cushion. This cushion
doesn’t require any sewing to redo. What I did is decide which of these stripes is to
be my center. In every cushion I’m placing this blue stripe on the center, that way it
is consistent when they are lined up. They look nice, they are repetitious in their look,
in the pattern repeat. How do you determine the amount of fabric does have to deal with
your pattern repeat. If it is a flower pattern, when you measure around and add four inches
on each end, then you divide that by your pattern repeat and that gives you the cut
and length of your material.
