Upholster a Simple Cushion Photos by Rob Brown INFO: DIFFICULTY - 1/5LENGTH/TIME - 1/5COST - 3/5Upholstery is a whole different ballgame than woodworking.But because this specific upholstery task didn't seem too hard, I figured even though I had no experience at all I could probably get a decent result without too much work.
Turned out I was right.The finished cushion works well, looks good, and it took me well under an hour to compete.Visit the fabric storeI selected a piece of 2"-thick rubber foam, which was more expensive than the other options but was the perfect density for this project.
I added a few layers of polyester craft batting over top of the rubber foam.This was sold in a larger size and is fairly thin, so I was able to fold it into three layers for my cushion.These layers provide a more even look and shape to the finished cushion.
Next was the fabric.The hard part was selecting the colour and pattern.Let the people assisting you at the fabric store know what you're using the fabric for, and they'll be able to help you choose an appropriate fabric for the project.
Make sure to choose something that won't fray easily when...
