Reupholstering the vintage dinette cushions from our Shasta Airflyte
WHEW it is DUSTY in here!
I just got finished ripping all the fabric and batting off the frames of our dinette cushions from the camper. The plan is to do a tuck-and-staple job on them since professional upholstery work would run upwards of $800. So I’m just going to add fresh batting, maybe some foam to make it a little extra cushy, then recover with heavy drapery fabric that I picked up at Ikea for $25. MUCH more in-budget.
I’m wondering about the layering of cushioning through. It goes 1) springs 2) fiber 3) cotton batting, then fabric. If you were re-doing these, would you add the foam between the fabric and the batting? Not do foam at all? They are going to fold down and serve as beds for the kids. Any advice?
