Intimidating office chair

Depending on the construction of your chair, this may or may not be required.

I noticed, as I was taking this chair apart, that it had cording stapled everywhere where the fabric met the wood.

So, if Boeschenstein can’t or won’t answer questions, the next logical step for the GOC is to ask questions of officials who were directly involved. In fact, last month GOC Senate Chairwoman Emily Cain asked Boeschenstein and DHHS General Counsel Kevin Wells whether either thought it made sense to invite CDC officials to answer questions.

Neither raised any objection, other than to point out officials may not be able to answer questions directly linked to the litigation.

Keeping your fabric and the cord itself stretched taut, use a zipper foot on your sewing machine to sew the cording.

Place the cord in the middle of your fabric (which should be 2”-3” wide and about 4” longer than your cord), fold the fabric over with the right-side-out, and sew together using a large (baste) stitch.

Looks like the Legislature’s Government Oversight Committee might have to exercise its little-implemented subpoena power after all.Although in reality this step is probably optional, the cording here provides a nice professional finish to the reupholstery.Tip: When stapling cording, place the first staple about 1” in from the end of your cording. Place your cording on the edge of your fabric (at the center of what will be the bottom of the cushion), raw edges of the cording lined up with the raw edge of your fabric.It’s the time-old conundrum, when you spy an old chair that you love but that needs some TLC: Do you pass it up because it needs some work, or do you buy it and learn how to reupholster it?Let me help make the answer to that question a little easier: You reupholster it yourself.

On this particular chair, the back side of the seat back was a separate piece that screws onto the cushioned seat back.
