Upholstered dining chair – Caned chairs making beautiful, old-fashioned addition to any dining room until they start fretting and Development holes from use. Before destroying the flogging of old chairs, get a qualified opinion on the effect of the change will have on the value of the piece. If the effect is negligible, or if you are just decided to change the style of your room, then go ahead. Remove flogging is easy and all you need is some plywood, upholstery and fabric to fashion new sites for your old chairs.
Make a upholstered dining chair top patterns with craft paper 1/2 inch smaller than the seat frame top all the way around. Cut a peak of 1/4-inch plywood for each chair. Cut the 2- to 3-inch-thick foam padding to fit each plywood cushion base. Glue one at each base. Cut pieces of 1/2 inch thick foam padding 2 inches larger around than the base to cover thicker cushion foam. Turn the seat tip up and down on the half-inch foam and pull evenly down around the plywood. Staple the cover to the base so close to the edge as possible. Trim thinner cover so it does not extend more than 1 inch in the bottom of the plywood base.
Cut your furniture fabric to fit the seat cushion so that the fabric extends about 3 inches on all sides of the base. Make sure the fabric pattern, if any, are consistent from one upholstered dining chair to another before cutting. Turn the fabric finished down, square pillow, up and down on it. Tack cloth lightly on each side of the pillow base in the center to hold it in place. Turn the pillow over to check the orientation of the fabric and adjust it if necessary. Staple or tack the fabric of plywood back of the pillow, light around corners as you work. Place staples or pins about 2 inches in from the edge. Trim excess material from the bottom of the pad.
