So almost every piece of furniture in our home is new or in really good shape except for 2 things a super old nasty30 year old recliner my husband refuses to get rid of( he uses it at a computer chair) (and ladies it even has a name Frankenchair) I am hoping to get rid of him this year for christmas and our Kitchen chairs.
Idealy I would love to be able to afford a new dining room set but we just do not have hundreds of dollars on one anytime soon. ( i had sold my set a few years ago when i moved out my my bigger home in an apartment and then me and my daughter just had a small round sweetheart table. We honestly rarely eat at the kitchen table unless there is someone over we usually just eat sitting on the floor at our coffee table in front of the tv. BUT those chairs are such an eyesore.
Honestly the table is in really good shape except for a few bumps and scratches on the legs and edges. It is solid wood that was handed down from his grandparents to his parents and then to him. and it is just the right size and shape for our small kitchen that has to sit infornt of our kitchen windows The chairs on the other hand they are chairs that have a hideous printed cloth bottom on them and all except 1 of them you feel like you are gonna fall through the bottom i n because they are just so old and worn out.
I have pads in them but with the way the kids are so rough on them and stuff almost all of the strings are ripped off.
Now i know that you can reupholster the bottoms (i dunno how to get them off but….. I was wondering what kind of fabric would be best to use?
I was curious if anyone has any suggestions on how to fix the sagging issue. It looks as if it is stuffing on top of cardboard covered with fabric that is screwed onto the chair on the bottom.
I am asumming i will need to replace the base of the chair but with what??
