Also asked, how do you cover an upholstered chair?
Sand, prime, and paint frame if desired; let dry. Cut a piece of 1/2-inch-thick batting to cover the chair back and seat, if needed. Cover the chair back first, stapling it down. To prevent visible indents from the staples, pull gently on the batting around each staple so the staple is inside the batting.
Secondly, how do you cover a chair with a sheet?
- Measure your chair from the floor on one side up and over the arm of the chair to the seat.
- Cut a fitted sheet in half crosswise.
- Place the two sheet halves printed side down over the arms of the chair so that the cut sides are dangling down the outsides of the chair arms.
Additionally, how many yards does it take to cover a chair?
An average club chair, for example, requires about 6 1/2 yards of fabric. Keep in mind, however, that this is a guideline, not a rule. Many factors-including the fabric's pattern, the upholsterer's work style, and variations in individual pieces of furniture-can influence the yardage.
