Adding Padding to Antique Chairs

I need some advice. Somehow I have been talked into recovering the seats of antique chairs. The woman wants to add padding and pick out the fabric which she would like to be easy to clean. I've never done this but seen it done on TV all the time. Can anyone help me? She somehow thinks I am an expert on this and I am not!

Are the seats removable?

If so, it will be a cinch!

Make sure you take the padding around the edges to soften it. And just work the fabric a little at a time so there is no wrinkles and staple underneath. Try looking on the Martha Stewart site. I seen on there one time , with pictures, how she did some. Or even the HGTV site might have something with details.

Good luck! But remember, have fun and think of how happy this will make your friend!!
