Finally!!! We get to do some upholstery!!!
45% preparation – 45% finishing 10% upholstery.
You will need cotton which can be bought at an upholster supply company for about $30. Mine is 30 inches wide which is just right for upholstery.
I walked over to my roll and literally tore off about a 25 inch length. I’m going to say my magic words again. This isn’t wood working. You measure precisely and cut with scissors. There is no benefit except for saving a few inches of cotton in the end of your cutting and measuring ordeal. Once again – I’ll say relax.
Anyhow, I flopped the cotton right down on top of the deck.
Now I’m going to tuck the cotton under the back and arms of the chair. That will leave me all the extra right up front. I need to make this cotton reach to within 1/2 inch of the chalk line I marked in the last Blog. It’s to long so I can cut it, OR (You guessed it) Tear it. I just put my left hand on the cotton so I could hold it close to the line then tore away excess with the right hand.
-- Thanks for all the lessons!
