Step 1: Get all your tools.
Step 2: Remove the four bolts underneath the chair with a wrench n° 10. If you have separated both parts put the bolts back on, so you don’t loose them and protect yourself for step 3.
Step 3: Start removing the staples, I didn’t count them but there are many of them. Be careful, injuries are possible.
Step 4: After removing all the staples, now take the fabric off and loosen all the seams, but mark your patterns so it is easy to fit them together afterwards.
Step 5: Place your patterns on your new fabric and start cutting.
Step 6: Sew all your patterns together.
Step 7: Put the fabric back on the chair and start stapling.
Step 8: Place the underframe back and tighten the bolts.
Step 9: Last but not least, put the pillow back, take a seat and relax…

    You don’t happen too still have the patterns lying around? I would really like to try something similar w my two SKRUVSTAs.

  3. I love Kajastina fabric. We had it in Canada several years ago. Then it came back last year so I stocked up a ton. Lovely job!
