How to repair upholstery springs

Repairing a favourite chair that has become worn out from time and use may sound challenging, but it doesn't have to be. Some repairs, such as those that involve the frame of the furniture, are better left for professionals. However, for chairs or couches that need to have old springs repaired or replaced, upholstery professionals are not necessary. You can complete these types of projects without the hassle or costs of hiring an upholstery professional.

Skill level:Moderate

Things you need

Staple pullerNew springsNew canvas (optional)Staple gun

Instructions

1 Turn the chair upside down so that you can access the underside of the chair.

2 Remove the staples holding the canvas to the chair with the staple puller and carefully remove the canvas.

3 Remove any padding that might be blocking access to the springs in the chair.

4 Untie the twine that holds each spring to the chair and remove the springs. Do not cut the twine. Leave twine attached to the chair after springs are removed.

5 Attach the new springs with the twine exactly where you removed the old springs. It is best to replace all springs at once to ensure that the chair is even and comfortable when used.

6 Replace the padding that was removed.

7 Reattach the canvas that was removed with a staple gun or attach a new piece of canvas.

8 Flip chair right side up.

Tips and warnings

If the padding in the chair is old or worn, purchase new padding to replace the old padding.

Be sure to collect all of the removed staples and dispose of them carefully to avoid injury.
