: Help with a wing back chair  ( 1064 )

« : November 05, 2010, 03:26:28 PM »

A referral just called and said she has a wing back chair and would like me to recover it. Been awhile since I've done furniture, so I am asking if anyone can estimate the time for a job like this before I look at it. Don't want to cut myself short on a cost estimate. any help would be appreciated. I did ask if it was a love seat or sofa and she said no, just a chair.

Wing back chairs have taken me 6 hours to 12 hours. There are many, many different styles and features.

You may spend more time than someone who does them a lot.

I had two wing back chairs earlier this year, book ends, that had quilted fabric stapled into an oak frame with those cheap wire staples. It took me 3 1/2 hours each, just to take the old fabric off. I used my air chisel to take off a lot of the fabric!

Probably my best advise is to see the piece of furniture before you say anything about your prices.

Good luck.
