How To Reupholster a $15.00 Garage Sale Wingback Chair

Everybody asks me if they can handle reupholstering the classic Wingback chair.  Unless you're a skilled slipcover seamstress, you might get overly ambitious and find yourself elbow deep in cotton batting before you know it. Before you remove the first staple, created at: 04/05/2010

see how Creative Maven tears it down in Part 1 and puts it all back together in Part 2.

I can tell you that she saved her friend at least $375.00 in labor, and that's a low reupholstery price here in the midwest.  You'll need these three things to start:

  1. patience
  2. perseverence
  3. a good book on CD or a friend to talk to

Have at it and don't forget to send me photos.

Thanks for the updated links, MC!

You'll also have to look to the suggested links at the bottom of EMMM blog to find part 2. Jeez.
Found the updated blog! Look under "Top Tutes".

The links no longer work, please update!!  Thanks!

Too bad, the links do not work.  I'm considering this option for my living room chairs also...

The links appear to be broken.  I would love to see your tutorials, Part 1 and Part 2, but I can't get there from here.

This is fantastic. i just bought some fabric and about to embark on the daunting task myself!

Thanks, Door251!

It's a great tutorial. I've been putting off doing a tutorial on a wingback. Nice job.
