Last fall or winter, my sister reupholstered her barstools, so I thought I ought to try redoing my own. I had leftever foam padding from the porch cushions I made last spring; I hated wasting it, and this would be a perfect way to use it. Sunday afternoon, I got two of them done. I used all the foam I had; now I need to buy more for the remaining two stools.
|The original barstool. We got these as unfinished for Christmas over 19 years ago when our house was newly built. We had a bar in the kitchen/dining area, but no proper seating for it. DH painted them.|
|Two screws underneath held the seat to the frame. We removed the seats with lots of grunting--they were tough little buggers!|
|Center the foam on the fabric. (I have two pieces here because I am using leftovers; it won't make any difference in the end.)|
|Layer the seat next. Be sure it's upside-down.|
