So the head goal, let's go so heavy right now. It looks scary, but right have you ever done any upholstering before no I've just done small projects. I did my dining room chairs, but that was just you. They Ok seat, cushion like the present wrapping. Yes, sort of method for upholstery, so um the chairs that were working on today. We actually filmed a segment before we start adjusting them and had some focus issues. So we've been working on stripping the chairs and so you're already getting some experience with it.
So the chairs that were working on today are a French style of chair and the reason why we're starting with these is, in my opinion, these are some of the easiest chairs to reupholster and that's mainly because the upholstered parts are all in panels. So if you mess up in one section, it's not going to affect another section if you have to rip it out and do it again. So if you see this style of chair, it's a great style to start on yeah, and I just love this style anyway. So it suits me well, but maybe we'll graduate to like wing chairs and stuff like that.
That gets a lot more complicated. So if you're new to upholstery, this is a good place to start. So the first thing we have to do is totally not fun in any way shape or form part of Ziering, which is removing the old upholstery. We are twice blessed with these chairs because they have the nail head trim as well as staples. So it's double the joy, but yes so um. Since these, though, have they don't have actually individual nail heads they have. This trim that's sort of a sort of a faux nail head trim, so this does make it easier. There's only a real attack, every five tasses or so or nail heads so we're making pretty quick work of stripping it off and we're leaving on the foam in place.
Now, although we will remove the foam off of the back so that we're able to upholster both the front and the back now the tools that you need, there are specific tools for stripping upholstery. This is a staple puller. This one probably works the best, because it has nice sharp teeth. You can really get under to be able to pry the tack or the staple up. The downside is that you do or what you have to be careful of is rocking it against the chair frame and actually damaging the chair frame.
