After the success of the last reupholstered chair, my mom quickly requested that all the shabby chairs in the house be reupholstered. This project was a lot easier than the reupholstered armchair project. The chair pad was held together by four screws. So all we had to do was unscrew the chair, reupholster the padding, spray paint the chair, and reassemble!
Lightly sanding the area surrounding the scratches will help even out the grain once you spray paint it.
