Vinyl isn’t a fabric that my mom and I work with frequently, but that doesn’t mean we wont. We recently had a client ask us to re-upholster three bar stools in a black vinyl. These chairs were pretty beat up when they arrived at our shop. The owner, a mother of young children, admitted that these chairs get a lot of abuse. That is why she requested vinyl. It is an easy fabric to wipe clean when inevitable spills occur.

Here is what one of the chairs looked like after we stripped the old fabric. (I forgot to get a before picture, so this one is during the transformation process.)

In addition to replacing the old, worn out fabric, we also shined up the wood legs a bit. Our client didn’t ask to have them stripped and refinished, so we just polished them with a nice furniture wax to improve upon the look.
