If you've got an old club chair with a sturdy frame but it looks worn and dated, reupholstering the fabric might be all you need to do to give it new life. With just a few tools and a little patience you can reupholster a club chair and wind up with a new favorite chair. Gather your materials. To reupholster a club chair you'll need up to seven yards of upholstery fabric, scissors, measuring tape, a staple gun, wadding and strips of upholstery tacks. Make sure to work outside or cover your work area with newspaper before you begin. Strip away all of the fabric that's covering the chair and the backrest. If the wadding looks dirty and worn, remove that too. Verify and measure the widest part of the backrest and the length from top to bottom. Add two inches on all side of your measurements when cutting the fabric to reupholster the club chair. Staple the fabric to the frame so that the side you want to show is facing out of the back of the chair with overlapping fabric on the inside. ... more
