Is Reupholstering A Chair An Easy DIY?

Is Reupholstering A Chair An Easy DIY?

These two chairs (pictured) are in the market for an overhaul and we'd like to reupholster them. We've been checking prices around town but don't want to spend the money right now on hiring someone for a project like this. (The whole want vs. need thing is a priority!) We've also researched doing this project ourselves and...

...we really are not sure if it's as easy as the instructions seem? A little nail gun here and placing of fabric there could go horribly wrong on our end so we wanted to reach out to the Apartment Therapy community to ask about your own experiences with reupholstering chairs.

Ok, Apartment Therapy, share with us the good, the bad and the ugly.
