Choose A Piece Of Furniture To Re-Cover
I love a bargain! I found this leather foot stool at Value Village for only $6! I am slowly working on making my 1 1/2 year old daughter a "big girl" room so I chose this little stool to re-cover to put in her new room.
Tools You Will Need
Here are the tools you will need:
- Upholstery Pins
- Staple Gun
Trim The Fabric
Lay your fabric out on a large surface area (colored side down). Place the piece of furniture in the middle of the fabric making sure to leave a few inches around the perimeter of the item. Trim fabric with scissors all the way around.
Secure Fabric To Furniture
Pull the fabric as tight as you can, making sure there are no wrinkles and secure in place with your staple gun.
Use your hammer to gently nail the upholstery pins in place. Try not to hit them too hard because they bend easily. I like to use these on the folded edges of fabric that are showing on the outside of the furniture - gives the finished product a more polished look!
Here is the end product! From a frumpy old leather stool to a fun, brightly colored piece of furniture for my little girl!
