Upholster an antique chair
In this Antique Side Chair video you will learn how to upholster this chair. The video includes upholstering the Synthetic Sagless to the bottom of the chair frame, and attaching coil springs to the Synthetic Sagless using an upholstered Klinch-It Tool.

You will learn how to attach the burlap and edge roll, pad the seat using synthetic cotton and Dacron upholstering materials. I will walk you through the steps necessary to attach your finished fabric using my upholstery methods and putting on your dust cover as well.
