Butcher Block Kitchen Chairs Ideas
Butcher block kitchen chairs can be stained and worn from years of use. The good news is that they are not so hard to reupholster. Since these chairs vary in how they were dressed, just be careful to look at how it was done while dismantling them. Some may have a stuffed seat in a frame, while others may be dressed right over the frame.

Reupholster Kitchen chairs
Remove the existing seat. Depending on how it was put together, you might want to carefully cut the glue around the Butcher block kitchen chairs and lift it off. It may need to be fined in any way. When you get rid of it, clean up the frame that it is either on or in. If there is glue on the frame, carefully sand it away. Take the fabric and dampen the base of the seat. If the base is in good condition, you can reuse it. If it’s not, you can use it as a template to cut a new piece of wood.
Cut a piece of fabric 3 inches larger than the Butcher block kitchen chairs. Cut a piece of foam just one hair bigger than the base. Put some glue on piece of foam and stick to the base. Place the piece of cloth over the foam and turn the seat upside down. Pull the other side so that it is tight and tight. Then repeat halfway between each of these staples. Work around the entire seat, pull it tight and staple. Put a string of straps around the frame of the seat and place the newly-seated seat in the frame. Place some heavy books on the seat to press it on the glue until it dries.
