Do you have swivel bamboo barrel chairs in your home? If so, how much do they mean to you? Swivel bamboo barrel chairs are a classic staple of any home and should be maintained with care.
However, if you don’t take the time to maintain them, the upholstery might become damaged or torn. This blog post will show how to repair your swivel bamboo barrel chair that are broken down and tattered!
Steps on how to Repair Your Swivel Bamboo Barrel Chair
Step 1. Purchase a fabric that matches the colour and design of your chair. The new upholstery will need to be cut according to how much is needed for the seat’s replacement.
It may also be necessary to purchase extra material if there are any holes or tears in the existing upholstery after removing it from its frame. As an alternative, you can purchase chair upholstery online or at your local furniture store.
Step 2. Remove the old fabric by cutting it away from its frame using a sharp utility knife. Be sure to trim any leftovers after removing each section of material so that there’s no chance of fraying or tearing when putting on the new pieces.
Step 3. Carefully remove the old padding from its frame and discard it. If you want to reuse the existing fabric, be sure to remove all staples with a sharp staple remover before removing any of the material itself.
Step 4. Measure how much new upholstery is needed for each part of your chair’s seat cover (this will depend on how thoroughly worn out or how much of the original fabric you want to reuse).
Step 5. Use a staple gun and new upholstery staples (or hand sewing needles) to attach your newly cut pieces. Be sure not to miss any edges or corners when applying these final touches, as this can lead to unravelling down the line.
