I wanted to take another look at the Drop cloth chair re-upholstery and point out some of the things that I changed while re-upholstering this chair. Design changes that make the re-upholstery job quicker and easier!
When I re-upholstered this, I found it was much easier to add cording to both sides of the arm.
By adding cording to both sides of the arm – that allowed me to easily use curve-ease to put the sides of the chair on.
On the original chair, they used upholstery tacks to attach the sides – this a decorative way of adding details, but it is:
A. not the look I was going for
B. not easy to do at all!!
By using curve-ease, you can see that I got a very smooth finished side that shows of the shapely curves of the chair!!
Just a couple of little changes, that made my re-upholstery job much easier, and added new details and definition to the chair. As you do more re-upholstery projects, you will become more confident in knowing what things you can change around in your projects!! I try to use curve-ease whenever possible because it makes the job so much easier and the finished look is so much nicer looking!
