In this video tutorial I will show you how I reupholstered this round tufted ottoman. You will see how I measure for my fabric cuts, how I make buttons using crimp style buttons and a button press. You will also learn how to tuft the top of this ottoman. I will show you how to attach your welt cord to the side of the ottoman and get a consistent straight line. I will then show you how to attach the boxing strip using a cardboard tack strip and last we will put a row of cording on the bottom edge and attach our dust cover before reattaching the legs. This video is approximately 80 minutes long.
