    Default Today I would like to chit chat about help help I need foam for my chairs TODAY!

    I'm going to head out on my way home from work to buy that foam stuff that goes between the fabric and the hard seat of my dining room chairs! Where do I get that? Fabricland? Michael's? Rona? They're all in different directions, help! I want them done before tomorrow.

    What about michael's? I think Walmart had some in their fabric section.. that's where we picked some up for our gear. Other then that.. what about calling that furniture place, Randel Klein or whatever to see if they have some small scraps you can pick up cheap?

    we have it a lens mill they are really cheap we well. we reccomend that you dont' go over the 1 - 2 inches. b/c you will need upholstery batthing to go over it. This helps not only add some more cushion but it also helps protect the fabric from the foam.

    If the foam is old and has a yellow powder make sure you get rid of it and dont' breath in the dust.

    If you need more help let me know. Also if you are in need of fabric we have a sale on right now that all yellow tagged is 50% off.

    Hope this helps.

    We needed some a few months ago. Cheapest place was Len's Mill. Little out of your way though.

    the prices start at $1.00 for a 12x12 and go up from there no more then 10.00 I think for the 36x36 square. Give them a call 519-686-3502

    The batting comes in either 27“ or 54“ the 27 is 3.00 a yard and the 54 is 6.00 a yards. Once nice thing about this is that if you find it too be too think you can easily pull it apart to make it thinner.

    oooh thank you! there is no foam on them at all right now, the person we bought it from seems to have stapled giant napkins to the chairs lmao so I will be starting pretty fresh. So if I go to lens mill and ask they will be able to hook me up? Where exactly is it??

    Friends of ours did it to their chairs. They said it was super easy. just a matter of a little bit of foam, a little bit of batting, and a little bit of glue. They also said you can use a staple gun to make sure it all sticks. I've never done it though.

    Lens is on the corner of Exeter road and White Oaks road. We are 360 Exeter Rd. We are across the street from Amway.

    Yep they should be able to help you out if you go back to the far right corner of the store you will find upholstery.

    Before you go please measure your seat the length and width. That way they know how much you need.

    If you need fabric the upholstery is 54“ wide and you can get either 3 18“ pieces out of it or 2 24“ pieces. That means out of a yard you will be either 6 or 4 seats. Just to give you a rough idea.

    We also have vinyl if you would like as well and the same example I just gave you.

    it is easy just take your time doing it.

    When you go to staple it make sure you start at the one side and staple a few. Pull taught to the other side and to the same. then again on the other sides leaving the corners till last this way you can cut away excess corner.

    I found this for you. How to Reupholster a Dining Chair Seat - wikiHow

    If you can take the seat in itself that would be handy as well.

    umm most of our fabric comes in scotch gurded. However with this being said I could still do it. We carry it for I think 19.99 a can or something less sorry I can't remember.

    We also have vinyl.

    With our fabric some are seconds and the scotch gaurding gets missed in the making of the fabric.
