I had a pretty cheap pool table I bought at a local store on clearance. I always hated the green felt, so when it got a tiny tear in it, I decided to refelt it! Here's the result:

I love this fabric, it's pimp-a-riffic! It is faux suede and looks a lot more mellow in natural light, but in bright light it looks like crushed velvet (like in the pic).

Because the table is a cheap one, I couldn't really disassemble it because it's all glued together. I basically had to pry the bumpers off with a crowbar. Some of the particle board that made up the back of the bumper split, so I had to glue that back together. After I took the felt off the bumpers, I discovered there were screwholes under the felt on the side facing the table, so I could have slit the fabric and screwed the bumpers off if I had known about it. Either way, though, I would have had to glue the bumpers back on, after recovering them. I used spray adhesive and a staple gun to do that. I used spray adhesive to glue down the main piece, and household GOOP to glue the bumpers on- with stacks of heavy books pushing against them until they were dry.

I think I would only recommend this project if you have a table you got on the cheap or if the upholstery is messed up and you won't have the funds to get it refelted. Apparently you can get it done for around $200 professionally. Sorry I don't have pics of my progress, but I didn't have my camera until now. Smiley
