Question about Furniture

Open Question

I just received a dining set with 4 captain type chairs that are all covered in badly worn/torn vinyl seat, back, and arm covers. I have no idea how to repair or even make the chairs nice looking. I

It looks like it originally was a very nice set... the seat, back, and arm covers are all in separate pieces and nicely padded. it looks like the seat and back are all in one piece, screwed on thru metal posts along the outside of the arms. is there some type of cover that i could get to cover these seats?

SOURCE: My grandmother gave me a set of old dining room chairs that she doesn't need anymore. They are very old and the wood does not look visually appealing. I would like to buy some slip covers to put

I would try to change the wood itself for something more durable such as tzalam wood. Tzalam is used for <a href="">high end outdoor furniture</a>.

How to change the dining chair cloth from down an back side . I was trying to remove it I couldn't , how Cani remove the back side and down ?

the main thing about upholstery is to hide the seams !! so t remove it you will need to find out how they hid the seams , sometimes theres tack strips sometime theres tacks , sometimes its just glue , what ever kind u got , you will need to find edge of seam and rediscover what type of method they used to cover seams with , then its just a matter of undoing the fastener and taking cloth off of wood , ohh and a few hints , allways replace padding too and don't be tempted to use more than what was there , theres a reason they used that amount 1st time and you wont be happy if u try to use more when u put it back together
