Full Answer

Some plastic chair covers slide over the back of the chair and down over the cushion to protect the entire chair. These are less common than the cushion covers. The smaller cushion covers allow the back of the chair to remain uncovered while still covering the cushion. Plastic cushion covers have become much more popular with the increase in the use of vintage furniture.

    How do you cover furniture with sheets and T-pins?

    A:

    To slipcover a sofa or chair with sheets and T-pins, purchase enough flat sheets to cover the back, arms, seat front and cushions of the furniture. It is easier to purchase a large sheet to drape over the whole piece of furniture than several smaller sheets that must be pieced to fit. Additionally, purchase a package of T-pins to secure the fabric to the furniture.

    How do you reupholster seats?

    A:

    To reupholster the seat of a chair, remove the old upholstery by prying it up with a screwdriver and pliers. If the wood base is solid, reuse it; if not, use it as a template for a new one. Add the batting over the wood, and staple it in place. Cut the upholstering material so it fits around the base with an extra 4 inches, and then staple the material into place. Trim the corners to eliminate lumps.
