Trimming a Side Chair

Steps:4
Try re-covering a side chair with taffeta fabric, and use a trim called gimp to edge the frame of the chair (and conceal the staples). Gimp is an ornamental flat braid or round cord used for trimming that you can find at fabric stores. Even if you don't re-cover the chair yourself, you can easily add an elegant finish with some decorative trim.
Materials
  • Kraft paper
  • Muslin
  • Scissors
  • Gimp
  • Hot-glue gun or vinyl adhesive
  • Fray check
