Revive tired, worn, and threadbare furniture with these easy-to-follow lessons in upholstery. So Simple Upholstery offers clear, detailed advice, and step-by-step photography that makes this subject accessible for even the newcomer. Four "background sections" discuss furniture styles, furniture anatomy, fabric & details, and tools & techniques. From there, 10 projects are presented, ranging from a simple music stool to an elegant chaise lounge. Additional topics include handling the practicalities of repairing innards, calculating new yardage, cutting pieces to fit properly, and achieving smooth coverage. The emphasis in this book is on practical household furniture - chairs, ottomans, sofas - because these pieces are used on a day-to-day basis. So Simple Upholstery encourages the reader to use the best materials and the most reliable techniques, so that furniture can enjoy a full life.
