This is what it looks like with the back cover off.
Next, put the upside down seat on the wrong side of the fabric that you would like to use (am I making sense here?). I didn't even bother to take off the old fabric. The thicker the better, I believe :o). Then, cut the fabric to size, so that you have enough fabric to staple to the bottom of the seat. I'm not very patient when it comes to measuring so whenever I can get away with it, I just eyeball it. Believe it or not, I did not even measure the seat before going out to buy the fabric. I'm adventurous like that :o). I just told the salesgirl "I need 2 metres of this.. no, on second thought make that 3, no, 2 and a half would be perfect. Thank you :o)". I know, I drive them nuts sometimes. Haha!
After you're happy with that, you can put back the back cover and re-staple it. Please ignore the uneven edges of the cover :o).
And then, just put the seat back on the chair and re-insert the screws.
And we're done! Ahhhh.. that looks much better. And the price: fabric RM60, staple gun RM30, the look on our neighbour's face when she saw what we did - Priceless! :o)
