Barrel chairs – deep chairs with a semi-circular form, sometimes known as Tub chairs – come in many shapes and sizes.
I took the challenge and offered to upholster a pair of them. The first one is finished and in its new home. I thought I’d share some photos with you here.
The bones of this chair are in good shape. I can’t over emphasize taking a lot of digital pictures of the deconstruction process. Those pictures will help you later as you put the chair back together. Be sure to label each piece as you remove it. I use a felt tip marker and write on the old fabric.
