Danny’s Upholstery in Virginia Beach offers a How to Guide to Reupholstering Your Furniture
If your furniture is looking like it has seen better days, you may be thinking about giving it the boot in favor of some newer pieces. But before you kick that old chair or couch to the curb, consider renewing that old furniture with some brand new upholstery. Like sanding and refinishing, reupholstering an old chair, couch, or cushion can really give new life to some of your older pieces. And, it can give you a chance to express some of your own creativity, in a hands-on fashion! Here are some of the essential tips that you will need to reupholster your own pieces of furniture or at least get a feel for the steps an upholstery shop takes to reupholster your furniture pieces.

Choosing a Fabric
Be sure to choose a fabric that you like and that will match the other furniture in the room. However, the thicker and stiffer the fabric is that you select, the more difficult the re-upholstery process will be. It is typically not recommended that amateur upholsters try to reupholster leather or suede furniture. Danny’s Upholstery is open to the public, and they can provide you with a great selection of fabrics.
Danny’s Upholstery Tip: They also recommend a pair of side cutters and staple remover to ease the tear down.
Depending upon the piece of furniture that you are reupholstering, you may also want to find a friend to help you out. It can sometimes be tricky to tackle reupholstering on your own.

Reupholstering a Chair Cushion
Reupholstering a chair cushion is a relatively easy job and is perfect for beginners. Practice on your cushions before you head straight to that loveseat or sofa bed!
Reupholstering an Armchair
Reupholstering an armchair is a little more challenging. Depending upon its size and decorative features (as found in wing chairs or scroll back arm chairs) you may require extra fabric and a little more patience.
