Director’s chairs and sling-back patio chairs are a popular way to provide summer seating for friends and family on your deck or porch. Oftentimes, these chairs come with fabrics that are not intended for heavy use or high sun exposure. The result is faded fabric and rips or tears in high stress areas. Fortunately, the simplicity of these chairs makes the fabric easy to replace!
Check out these two new videos with step-by-step instructions on how to replace the fabric on both a sling-back chair and a director’s chair.
We recommend using a Sunbrella fabric or a Phifertex mesh as replacement fabric for your chair. Sunbrella fabric offers excellent fade, stain, and water resistance and provides great durability to withstand the weather (see What You Should Know About Sunbrella Fabric). Phifertex mesh is a dimensionally stable tight mesh with great flexibility, durability, and fade resistance. Either fabric would be an excellent, long-lasting choice for your outdoor furniture.
