Enjoy our LIVE videos where I share how I upholstered this Eastlake Chair

Reupholstering An Eastlake Chair

I love the pieces you can find in Facebook marketplace, don’t you?  I purchased 3 small chairs for $70 and this little cutie was one of them.  I’m thinking they would look nice around a dining room table.  If you are new to upholstery this is a great DIY beginner project.  I always suggest starting with a piece that teaches you several skills but does not leave you overwhelmed or frustrated.  You may find this video talking about “picking your first upholstery project” helpful in choosing that perfect DIY upholstery project.

The fabrics I used for this project are from Greenhouse Fabrics you can find the links below.  I painted the frame before reupholstering the piece and used Rustoleum chalk paint.  Some of you may not like painted pieces but this is the look I was going for.  The piece still needs its double welt and then this Eastlake chair will ready for company.

Velvet: B6921-Mediterranean

Floral: B6917 Serenity
