DIY Upholstery – How To Upholster
If you want to know how to reupholster your chairs and sofas to a perfect condition so your furniture looks as if a professional upholsterer has done the job…(and you want to save yourself a huge amount of money in the process) ……then…read every word on this web site very carefully.
That’s because you’re about to discover the secrets behind tufting, stitching, buttoning…and how to restore sagging seats, replace worn coverings, replace any worn out springs, re-new stitching. And more, MUCH more.
It’s a shame when your antique chair or sofa shows its age.
The covering is worn. The seating isn’t as comfortable as it used to be. The bottom is sagging where the webbing has broken. Perhaps, you can even see the springs.
Mind you, this is still stylish furniture, despite its present appearance. Sofas and chairs anyone would be proud to have in their lounge or sitting room – if they were only restored to new condition.
Yet, when visitors come round for an evening and sit down on your chair or sofa you feel, well, embarrassed by its sorry state. And, perhaps you’re using a throw to disguise your furniture’s present condition.
Of course, you could throw out your furniture and buy new…but that would be sacrilege. They don’t make furniture like they used to, do they? These modern mass produced sofas…they just haven’t been built to last. And they lack character. They’ve been thrown together. No real craftsmanship in them is there?
And, quite frankly, if you decide to buy new you’ve got the un-budgeted cost of several thousand dollars for a new chair or sofa. And do you want to buy modern furniture when you prefer old traditional furniture? Of course you don’t. Any brand new piece would look out of place in your sitting room or lounge.
There’s no getting away from it, you need to reupholster your chair or sofa.
Oh sure you’d have a professional job done by using a full time upholsterer …IF… (And it’s a big IF)…you’ve sourced a good upholsterer. BUT at some cost. They do know how to charge. And you could be in for a shock when you see the invoice.
Just take a look at the upholstery fees I discovered by looking at a few upholstery websites;
It’s a lot of your hard earned money suddenly gone, isn’t it?
Alternatively you could attend upholstery classes, week after week, to learn the upholstery skills yourself. Of course you’d have to take time out of your busy schedule to go to evening classes. And pay to attend them.
A way that shows you step-by-step how to competently do the upholstery job yourself. Imagine…re-upholstering any piece of furniture to the same standard as a professional upholsterer.
You see, the fact of the matter is…
…Once they know a few insider secrets.
So your chairs and sofas have…Firm seating which has been stuffed correctly and is smooth and regular with no dips or lumps. Neat tidy stitching which is straight and pleasing on your eye. A cover which is tight in the right places and pleasing on your eye. And tightly sown buttons which sit snugly in the covering.
In other words a finished re-upholstering job you’re proud to show anyone (even a professional upholsterer).
Resulting in a chair or settee that’s comfortable and your family will enjoy sitting on watching television. Or reading a book or simply spending an evening socializing with friends.
You see it doesn’t matter whether you need to re-upholster a chaise lounge…a circular backed chair, if you need to pad chair arms or backs…spring backed pieces…double stuffing… over stuffing… barrel chairs…whether piping is needed you…pleated buttoning is needed…or tufting is needed…
And, it doesn’t matter how much upholstery experience you’ve got.
You can be a complete beginner and still do a professional looking upholstery job on your chairs and settees when you use these step-by-step insider short-cuts.
“After reviewing the 1st two chapters, I really appreciate the detailed illustrations.” L. Martin, USA
“Great information!!! I am a DIY upholsterer myself. Have done two antique sofas fairly well but had to figure it all out on my own and what I could find on the web. I just purchased an 1800′s settee/recliner that is in pretty bad shape but the bones are good. This will help tremendously.Thanks again.” V. Collins, MO
Absolute beginners, experienced upholsterers (even professional upholsterers) are using these same reupholstering techniques to do a better upholstery job.
What’s more it doesn’t matter how practical you are. You don’t need to be particularly good with tools to do a great reupholstering job.
If you can use a needle and thread and know which end of a hammer to use you’ll be good at reupholstering. And be able to re-upholster a chair/settee you’re proud of.
Simply by following these upholstery instructions.
Furthermore, you don’t need to spend a small fortune on special upholstery tools either. Most of the tools you need are already in your garage.
Also by following these re-upholstering insider short-cuts you can often complete your re-upholstery within hours. Either a couple of evenings. Or one day at the weekend. Just imagine starting your re-upholstering in the morning completing it by the afternoon. And sitting comfortably (and proudly) on it in the evening.
And perhaps best of all you can…
Here’s what it’s all about:
My name is Tom Silver. And for the past 30 years I’ve been a professional reupholsterer. You won’t recognize my name. I don’t write for any furniture magazines or upholstery web sites. Nor am I linked with any of the larger upholstery supply companies around.
I prefer to let my many satisfied clients spread word of mouth about my upholstery skills.
But it wasn’t always like this.
You see, I’ve always loved old furniture. And have a lot of items in my home. Mainly left to me by an old auntie who’d passed away and left me the contents of her house. I suppose that’s what got me interested in upholstery in the first place.
You see a lot of these items needed re-upholstering. And that’s when my troubles started.
I couldn’t afford to pay for them to be professionally restored. And besides I wanted to show any visitors to my home how good I was at upholstering.
I could never get the fabrics tight enough. My buttons were too loose. My coverings sloppy. My cushions and pillows looked bloated.
And once when I attempted to re-upholster my chaise lounge… well…I ended up having to put a blanket over it to cover up my botch-up.
Whichever way you looked at it my upholstery techniques sucked!
It was infuriating. You see, I was enthusiastic about re-upholstering but I just couldn’t get it right.
But that all changed one day.
I was browsing an old bookshop one day. And amongst the old book section I came across an old reupholstery book.
The pages were yellowed. The covers were only just still joined together. And there were many loose pages inside.
But the content…well…that was solid gold.
Of course back then they knew how the correct upholstery techniques properly.
Anyway, I bought the book and rushed home.
I got one of my previously botched up chairs and started re-upholstering it following the step-by-step upholstery instructions in the book carefully.
And I couldn’t believe the end result. It looked like a professional upholsterer had done the job. I was so proud. Over the next months I re-upholstered all my other pieces of furniture which needed doing.
Friends started commenting on how good my reupholstering skills had become. From that day on, word spread like wildfire. My telephone was ringing non-stop.
Before I knew it I had a full time business on my hands!
However, I’m now getting to the age of retirement. And I’m gonna’ hang up my upholstering tools. I’m going to spend my days fishing and playing with my grandchildren. But before I retired I always promised to write an upholstery instructions guide revealing the insider secrets to upholstery success.
