Reupholsters Black Rocking Chairs
Black rocking chairs – never go out of fashion, but sometimes they wear out. You might have an heirloom or just a favorite old rocker with padding that has been torn and stained, faded, or has just fallen apart during the year. However, you do not have to hire a professional who reupholsters black rocking chairs. With the right equipment and tools, you can give your rocker a new life by reupholstering it yourself. Find the screws that hold the chair together. Use a cordless drill and a bit that matches the chairs screws to remove all the screws. Take the chair, which screws in a safe place so they do not get lost. Remove all feed from the back and seat of the rocking chair.
Dimensions widths and lengths of the black rocking chairs seat and back, so you know how much upholstery fabric you will need for each piece. Add 1 inch to the length and width measurements for each piece to ensure you have enough fabric to fold the edge in a nice edge stitch. Add new upholstery down on your work surface. Use a tape measure, ruler and fabric marking pen to measure and mark the new coatings for the back and seat of the rocker. Make the lines dark and easily visible, as they will be your guidelines for cutting fabric to size. Use sharp scissors to cut the fabric to size. Dull scissors will not cut efficiently through the thick upholstery fabric and will leave you with jagged, uneven edges.
