Class Overview

In this Dining Room Chair upholstery video tutorial you will learn the steps we used in upholstering this chair. The video begins with your seat support system including sagless and springs. Once we have completed the springing up portion of the seat I will then go into padding the seats before applying the finished fabric. With the seat upholstery completed we will go on to add a support system, again using sagless, to the inside back. The padding and fabric will be applied to the inside and outside back before we move on to the final details. To complete this project we will be applying decorative gimp followed by antique brass upholstery nails.
