1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Re: Fifties cocktail chair reupholstered on: November 05, 2013 09:23:38 AM
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!
