Reupholstering the seat and back of a occasional or dining chair is one of the easiest reupholstery jobs there is. Spray paint, fabric, padding, and a fair amount of imagination along with a staple gun, a screwdriver or better yet, a screwdrill, and a hammer are essential to complete the job.

Follow along with us as we take various pieces of old but sturdy furniture and transform them into fashionable new furniture. Coming up are several “free” chairs waiting to be reupholstered for new owners, and a myriad of lighting fixtures.¬† Yes, we are going to tackle electricity!

We’ll see you soon.
