So I bought a pneumatic stapler on eBay for $38. And I'm not quite sure what I was thinking. Well, I was thinking, I don't want to spend $175+ to get my chair professional upholstered when I only paid $50 for it. But this very well worn stapler arrived in the box without directions and I don't even know if it works. So now I guess my next plan of action is to go to Home Depot and see if the tool people can test it for me before I go ahead and rent an air compressor.
And in case your wondering, this is what the chair looks like now. It has one coat of primer. I still need to add a second coat of primer and then paint it with Rust-Oleum Heirloom White spray paint. (Recommended by Centsational Girl.)
Hopefully I can re-upholster this without loosing a limb! I'll keep you posted.
