What tools would you need to upholster this chair? - Would you use nails or a staple gun to do this?

Vintage Renewal
Always a staple gun. I use an air gun with an air compressor, but you can also begin with an upholstery hammer and tacks. I am going to be blogging more about how to redesign furniture and what you need at if you want to sign up for the mailing list and learn how to do it too. It's so much fun to put your own style stamp on furniture. You'll love it!

Hi Junk Chic! I designed this stool myself and I sell all my work on I was actually gifted this stool out of an industrial warehouse in Denver and I tore it apart to the bare bones and built it back up with burlap and vintage scarves.

I should be doing an entire office chair series on my site come January. Make sure to keep up with what we are doing. :-)
Thanks for writing!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kerrie L. Kelly added this to Houzz Tour: Life in the Vintage Renewal Loft
This drafting table is so chunky and interesting, it would look great with anything. The backdrop is a score of thrifted art pieces Connolly calls granny art. "I love those old-school '70s crochet and embroidery art pieces I randomly come across in my vintage scouting!"
Bohemian With some patchwork upholstery, this standard stool becomes completely unique — and fits perfectly in this artsy workspace.
Shawn Gauthier added this to 11 Ways to Remake a Room With Fabric
Have an old desk chair that’s super comfortable but hard on the eyes? Give it new life by covering the back in a combination of fabrics. Choose complementary colors and patterns for an eclectic vibe. See more of this loft studio
Erin Lang Norris added this to 15 Ways To Be More Inspired by Your Studio
Angle your workstation. Rather than feeling like you are boxed in, try positioning your desk on an angle. It will make the room feel more open when you're sitting and allow you to work from a perspective you aren't used to.
Lauren Donaldson added this to Craft the Perfect Creative Space
Drafting desks are a great, flexible solution. Use them flat when needed, but prop them up to save space the rest of the time.
Lisa Frederick added this to Scarves Have Interior Design All Wrapped Up
Strips of scarf fabric dress the back of a reupholstered drafting chair, lending a feminine touch to this hardworking space.
