Bring a little personality into your home decor! Dining room chair seats are the perfect beginner project. With a bit of muscle, foam, dacron, and a few tools you too can learn How To Upholster Dining Room Chair Seats. I use a pneumatic staple gun but this project could easily be done with a hand stapler if the wood frame isn’t too hard.

I have an antique dining room chair where the wooden seat structure is not configured to pop that seat form out of a “rail” it seems to be seated in. Do I take the whole chair apart? Is there an easier way? Thank you, Mari
Hi Mari, Look underneath the chair and you may see holes with screws. If not there may be decorative trim hiding the staples holding the fabric on.
