NY Good Questions: Can I Upholster This Chair Myself?

Pin it button big

Dear AT,

My friend is throwing out an IKEA Tullsta barrel chair, and I offered to take it off his hands.

The only problem is that the chair is in the "natural" color and heavily stained.

I know IKEA sells slipcovers for this chair, but the selection is frightfully limited and I found them to be rather boring.

Is it possible to upholster this chair by myself?

Any thoughts or tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks! Christina
