Here's a SNAPSHOT of how I did it.
1. Repair any wobbly broken legs
2. Carefully remove upholstery
FOR THE BACK, used a stapler remover to pry off the TACKS and GAZILLION staples. It was important to remove the back carefully to maintain its shape as it was the pattern for the new upholstery.
3. Prep and paint the chair frame
4. Cut new upholstery pieces
FOR THE BACK, pinned the old upholstery on top of the new WILD ZEBRA PRINT upholstery and cut it to the same size. The direction of the Zebra stripes needed to be kept the same as the seat so it looks consistent.
5. Secure new upholstery
FOR THE BACK, pinned the first layer of the material to the inner cushion, then staple it into the inner chair rim all the way around. Next was to line up the 2nd layer and staple it in place. Any excess bits were either trimmed to fit. Last part was to put back the tacks using a mallet and excess piece of material (so the chair doesn't get dented) along the inner chair rim to finish it off.
The finished product!
