Just a note about the seat. I used a plywood base because these are dining chairs. I prefer a firm seat on dining chairs because if the seats have too much give to them, you can end up sitting too low at the dining table. It’s probably less of a problem for most people than it is for me since I’m just 5 feet tall. But if I were making occasional chairs rather than dining chairs, I’d forgo the plywood and use jute upholstery webbing for the seat. And if I were making living room chairs, I’d probably take the time to learn how to use actual springs. I’ve watched videos of springs being added to chair frames, and it doesn’t look difficult. Springs can be purchased at upholstery supply shops.

Hi everyone. As I said earlier this week, I’m sharing how I built the Parson chairs for our DIY Farmhouse Table. I really wanted to still try to save money on the chairs as well, but I couldn’t find any that either matched our table, had the fabric we liked, or that weren’t an arm and a leg. Each of these chairs cost about $40 each to make. The biggest cost came from the fabric. Home decor fabric isn’t cheap, but I found this on sale at Hobby Lobby. I wanted something that would complement our home decor and wouldn’t show stains from dirty little fingers. I found the plans for these chairs once again from the fabulous Ana White. Her plans are great, but I made a few modifications to better suit our needs/desires. Based on another brag post, I used 2x3s for the chair seats and backs as well as the back legs. I also increased the height of the chair backs to 22 inches and changed the angle of the backrest from 15 degrees to 5 degrees. I wanted them to sit a little straighter since they are formal dining chairs at our not-so-formal dining table:)

I’m in total awe……..wow, Kristi, you are simply amazing. Nothing stops you. You are incredibly talented to think, design and make your own wingback chairs. The chair already looks amazing and I thank you for the detailed process. I’ve wanted 2 wingback chairs for our dining table and now with your pics and instructions…..I just think I could also do this. You give me such inspiration to DIY and I always say if Kristi can do it, I can do it too. Thank you for being so inspirational to us all.

Ana, what a GREAT chair! I have one almost like it that I have done in Sketchup. Your other chairs are wonderful, but as most of the people in my family are on the hefty side, and I needed one with more size and structural supports. I am despirately in need of everyday kitchen chairs. So I also put the cross members for the legs on the bottom, and the corner braces under the seat. I have been however, trying to decide what material to make it from when i get to that point. Like I said, as my family members are on the heafty side, I have seriously been considering using a good quality plywood. Making my own 2×4’s by cutting 2×4 sized pieces of 3/4 ply, then gluing the together for the legs. Then making the cuts for the back legs / back of the chair. Ply is SO strong! And as I will probably paint the chairs not stain them, plus with some thorough sanding, the ply layers would prob not show anyway. I know that cutting all those pieces will be a lot of work, plus I am adding additional cost to the chairs by using a good quality ply, but thats ok. I have a straight edge that allows me to make pretty precise straight cuts on plywood with a circular saw. Thanks again for that wonderful chair!!

Welcome back to Upholstery Basics, where we’ll be rolling up our sleeves and completing our first project together: a wrap-around seat. Of all seating, dining room chairs get the brunt of the abuse — a little vino here, red sauce there. If you’ve been glaring at those chairs and wondering how to give them that much-needed facelift, read on, and you’ll be transforming those eyesores into jaw-droppers in no time. — Amanda

Those are the ones that are currently flanking the buffet. I removed the arms. I didn’t need or want arms chairs, but I wanted those two chairs to be different from the ones that I’m planning to use around the table. Those two chairs, in addition to having arms, were also just a tiny bit taller, so I removed the arms and upholstered them to go by the buffet. The other six match, and will be used for the table.

Having that other dining chair right there to use as a template throughout this building process really made the whole thing much easier. If you decide to take on a dining chair building project, and don’t have a dining chair to use as a template (especially for those back support pieces), I highly suggest taking a trip to Goodwill or Salvation Army and picking up a cheap chair that you can use as a template. If you don’t get those back supports right, the whole chair will look awkward and feel very uncomfortable.
