Houzz: Quick Fix Reupholster A Chair Seat

This bedroom got an entire overhaul.  Along with the lamps, the vintage reproduction art and the painted rug I also updated a midcentury modern chair.  It, along with three of its friends, was a recent thrift shop score; I purchased four chairs for $20. Yes, $20 total.  Their clean lines and sleek frame plus their solid wood construction made them a perfect addition to our home. One special chair, originally intended for our breakfast nook, is now, happily, stationed in our bedroom.

I love the interest the bold fabric creates.  This before photo certainly shows the amazing transformation.

This project was so simple to complete and it really gave the chair the WOW factor.  Want to see all the steps in perfecting reupholstering a chair seat? Check out the full article and all the pictures on Houzz:

I can't wait until the nook is finished so I can get the rest of the chairs reupholstered and out for everyone to enjoy.

Have any experience tackling a reupholstery project?  Something a bit more difficult than this chair?  I'd love to see the results.
