Learning To Upholster Starts With Upholstery Teardown

When you find that perfect project the second thing you do is the upholstery teardown.  The first thing you will want to do is to figure out measure fabric yardages. I’ll share my method for calculating the fabric yardage in the link above.  Be sure to print out the downloadable PDF as well.

So now it is time for teardown.  In the video below Bill shares the tools that we use to get the teardown completed.  Don’t underestimate the amount of time teardown may take.  You can expect to spend anywhere from one hour to a whole day or more doing a teardown.  The time involved depends on the piece and whether you are tearing down to bare bones, which I highly suggest, or just removing the fabric.  In this video, we show you how we tear down to bare bones.  There are no short cuts here in our upholstery studio.

Please share your upholstery experiences or questions in the comment section below the video and be sure to check out the other content on The Upholstery Life section of our website.

See you on the inside, Kim
