Revamping Chairs

I have these old chairs that Gordon and I bought just after we were married and they are kind of ugly looking so I decided to revamp them.

It was really easy and only took about an a hour.

Have you reupholstered your chairs? Tell me about it in the comments below!

Next I measured out the pieces of material and I left about 2 inches of extra around the edges. Since I didn't have a staler, I used a hot glue gun to attach the fabric.

Hot glue solves all problems!
 After I finished the gluing process, I cut off the excess fabric. Here is one of the finished pieces. Once I finished both parts of the chair I screwed them back in and...

The new seat
This is what it looks like when it is all finished! What an improvement over that ugly chair from before!
