Hi all, I hope to have landed in the right forum. I quite liked the way your chair was done and I'm hoping to get some solid advice.

I have a much similar chair i would love to reupholster. Because it was in quite a desperate state I basically had to strip it off entirely to find out it had 4 moldy covers on it including the bits of the wood. So now i'm left with just the bare structure of it.
I managed to take out all the nasty nails and over all it still quite solid although i will reinforce it before re cover it up.
Now i'm seriously wondering how i'm i going to approach its reupholstering as I could not find on Youtube any videos of similar chairs been redone from scratch. 
My one has big metail springs mounted on metail plates nailed to the wood frame and they are all linked with a square wire at the top i guess to give the squaresh shape. I would love to post a pict but I can't just yet.
Any advice please??
Big thanks you!

Oh my, thank you all so much!  Smiley

@silf72 Sorry for the late answer. There was a tutorial showing how to upholster a cocktail chair from scratch, but it seems like it has been removed (http://ownmade.wordpress.com/2012/12/07/diy-upholstering-a-cocktail-chair/). But maybe you just found a way to wing it?

Happy Thanksgiving and Chanukah to all Craftsters!
