Dining Chair ReUpholstery Class

Re-upholstery is a simple DIY way to give old furniture a whole new feel. Funky Fresh's Upholstery class combines upcycling and fabric by taking a worn out seat and making it feel great again. 

Teacher: Kristina Thelen
 Cost: $35-$50

Instruction, upholstery gun and staples, and batting is provided.
Bring your own chair or buy one from us for 10% off for this class.

Bring your own fabric or buy some from Funky Fresh (5$ per chair for class participants).

A note on fabric:  When choosing your fabric, keep in mind upholstery weight fabric is best- look for durability and strength.  Medium weight could work too.  Lightweight fabrics like calico cottons and quilting fabrics are not durable enough and will wear and tear within a year.  Also, think about how easily the fabric will clean- particularly if you have kids!
