How to Replace a Button on a Tufted Chair Fix a popped button on a tufted chair back with this upholstery teacher's step-by-step tutorial Follow Shelly Leer Houzz Contributor Houzz Contributor More »Comment22Bookmark226Like11EmailEmbedClick "Embed" to display an article on your own website or blog.Share: Upholstery repair can be a lucrative facet of an upholstery or interior design business, for someone who has both upholstery and problem-solving skills. But some simple furniture repairs, such as fixing a button, can be accomplished by anyone with patience who can work carefully and methodically. I rigged this project by removing one of the buttons that comprised a diamond tuft in the back of a chair, so you can see exactly how to replace missing buttons, or undertake your own chair restyling by adding a simple tufted detail. This upholstery know-how will save you the money you'd spend on a service call or a new chair. I'll warn you now: You might get nervous in the middle of this fix, but hang in there. You can do it. Persevere. And if you really get anxious, send me a message. Having the confidence and skill to carefully unhitch and rehitch the outside back of a piece of furniture can come in quite handy for a myriad of upholstery projects, problems and repairs, whether you're a DIYer or a professional.
