Over its lifetime, "SINGER[registered] Upholstery Basics" has sold nearly 150,000 copies. Now, with five new projects and an entirely fresh presentation, "SINGER[registered] Upholstery Basics Plus" is truly the best book for beginners and seasoned upholstery buffs alike. All the basic upholstery techniques are taught. Projects include all styles of chairs or couches, stools, different styles of ottomans, a bench, and a headboard. Some projects are built-from-scratch, items that require only simple carpentry skills for building the frames. Others show the complete process of stripping, repairing, and reupholstering old furniture pieces to like-new condition. Large colour photos of the step-by-step instructions set this book apart.
