How to Upholster a Desk Chair?

It's not an exaggeration to say that I've accidentally filled my home with furniture that I don't love. It is now one of my favorite furniture pieces.


Momma doesn’t have the cash to buy a new desk seat right now.

I was looking through the aisles when I stumbled upon a few fabrics I liked. Nothing was better than "take me home!" I was astonished to see the exact same microsuede that I bought before for making pillows and drapes for my living room.

There was a small voice in my head that said something. A beautiful microsuede alligator with deep chocolate brown coloring.

It was 60% off! ! I felt happy and excited to go home to start my new life.

I was excited when I started to deconstruct the chair. Oh, how do you hate pulling staples! Not staples that want to be pulled!

After an afternoon of pulling, pulling and grunting at it, I was finally able to get it off my chest.

These were used as rough patterns for cutting my fabric. I wouldn't recommend covering leather or pleats with this fabric.

How to do it:

  • New upholstery material
  • Scissors
  • Razorblade
  • Flathead screwdriver
  • Hammer
  • Allen wrenches
  • Needle nose pliers
  • Cotton batting or polyester
  • Industrial staple gun
  • Staples replacement

Start by removing the hardware (arms and roll pedestals). ). Start by removing the hardware (arms, roll pedestal, etc.).

Place the old cover on top of your new fabric. Spread the old covering on top of the new fabric.

Make small cuts once you have everything cut. I wanted to "get my feet wet" so I covered the armrests first. Add extra cushioning material at this stage.

Tape the edges of each side of the fabric once to add tension. This gives your chair a professional look.

A backing board can be a blessing. Depending on how stubborn it is, you can either use a knife or a hammer to remove the backing board. You can then cover the remainder of the furniture with the crowbar or a hammer depending on how stubborn you are. To hold the pin portion, I recommend using a pair of needlenose pliers. This will allow you to use your unmashed fingertips to do a lot more.

Once you have attached the fabric to the pieces, you will need to make small holes for the screws. Now you can put the old hardware back together.
