  1. Remove fabric-covered seat.
  2. Use 1" flat brush to paint the chair frame with Yesteryear.
  3. Lightly sand the painted areas. Repeat application and sanding.
  4. Use wax brush to apply the Americana Decor Creme Wax over the entire surface of the chair frame.
  5. Use a soft cloth to buff wax.
  6. Place seat on wrong side of fabric of your choice. Use scissors to cut fabric leaving a generous amount on each side for wrapping around cushion to seat bottom.
  7. Secure the center edge of fabric on one side at a time with staple gun. Once fabric is pulled tightly from each side, pull remaining fabric around and secure with staples. Use scissors to trim each corner, fold and staple. Re-attach the covered chair seat.


If using striped or patterned fabric to re-cover furniture, always to check alignment before stapling all the way around.
