The wingback chair is right. It looks difficult I'm gonna see. If I can take you along with me today and we are going on a field trip to the fabric store for upholstery class. Let's go. We got to go load up the chair now, so I found this chair. It was $ 80 at the thrift store, but you know me I've got coupons, so it only cost about $ 60 and guess where it's at for three years and my garage, which is crazy anyway, you may be looking at the pattern saying sarena. This looks really good. Why are you-you reupholstering this? Well, it was so faded from the sun that it looked like.
It was great, but it was actually like a deep blue color, so it needs to be made over and I love trying new skills and taking new classes. So that's why I took the reupholster class and this is part one of what's probably going to be a three part series so make sure you subscribe, so that you don't miss the final outcome of this chair, but it needed a makeover. I love the fabric, but it just wasn't gonna work and those legs need to be refinished, so the first part was to remove the dust cover. Now, that's the black fabric.
But that's basically the cover that helps to keep dust out of the chair and the way that he explained it is you want to start with the thing that was done last on the chair, so the dust covers generally. The last thing, that's added! So that's what I started with once I removed the dust cover. I realized oh there's some cording that can now be removed, so that was the next layer that I had to peel away, and I did that with a pair of pliers, probably not the best tool, but you know it helped me to kind of grab it and You'll see that I'm ripping it off here I was moving very gently trying to remove every single staple and the man was like.
No, don't do that. Just rip it away now. You'll see here, I was able to rip away the cording on both of the sides on the bottom, but it looks like it's tucked up underneath of that fabric around the leg, so I had to wait in order to remove that part. I said I put in this cardboard just next right to the scene, ah made kind of a stiffness. I wouldn't move us like this if it wouldn't have like this something interesting about this corning is that wood here, however, it's flipped that made a cut here and here again the same thing at the back.
So after getting some instruction from the instructor, I then could remove the back, and that was step three and you'll see here that there was a lot of batting back there. There was some old fabric that it looked like. It could have been the old fabric from the previous chair, or maybe it was just a piece of scrap fabric, but it didn't really matter because all of that was going to be removed anyway.
