Recover Deckchairs

How to Recover a Traditional Wooden Deckchair

Traditionally deck chairs were re-covered once a year. After summer use and winter storage in often damp, cold conditions in a shed or garage your deckchairs will probably be looking a little tired. Fortunately, with just a few simple tools and Deckchair Fabric available from The Stripes Company re-covering a deckchair is simple and quick.

In the video 'How to Recover a Deck Chair' below Maria from The Stripes Company shows you how ! Please call us on 01244 336 387 if you need any additional help or advice after watching


Buy Deckchair Fabric

We can now make Deckchair HEADRESTS to match the deckchair fabric you choose to recover your chair in - They make your deckchair SO COMFY! - NEW Deckchair Headrests

If your deckchair has a method of attaching the fabric which involves a stitched channel at the top and bottom of the canvas where a wooden dowelling rod is inserted to keep it in place, and also involves stitching up the sides of the canvas for the correct width then we can do this for you with our made to measure Replacement Deckchair Slings

How to Recover a Deckchair

  • Step 1 - You will need
  • 1.5 metres Deckchair Canvas Fabric - see our range of deckchair fabric in over 40 different Stripes!
  • 45cms wide
  • Stripes must be vertical
  • 20 + Upholstery Tacks
  • Hammer
  • Scissors
  • Step 2 - Deckchair Frame Position
  • 1 Place frame upside down on a table - Note the position of the ridges – ridges on underneath
  • 2 Start at the top - The wide end - with 1.5 metres fabric
  • 3 Lift bar b and then bar c to secure out of the way (like the deckchair is erected but upside down). Feed fabric underneath bars a & b - Fold over edge of fabric 2-3 cms
  • 4 Roll fabric back over bar 'a'
  • Step 3 - Attach Fabric Wide End
  • 1 Starting at one edge insert upholstery pin on underside of bar. Hold pins between two fingers as in pic 2. Gently hammer till it bites. Remove fingers, hit it hard till pin head flush with fabric (pic 3)
  • 2 Next put a pin in the centre, hammer in
  • 4 Next put in pin at other end
  • 5 Repeat - Fill in with the remaining pins - 9 /10 in total
  • Step 4 - Attach Fabric Narrow End
  • 1 Feed rest of fabric underneath bar at narrow end
  • 2 Turn the fabric in so that it fits inside frame
  • 3 Fold over end of fabric (cut off if too much)
  • 4 Fold over bar and secure as before
  • Because our fabric is 100% natural cotton with no synthetics, the weave is constructed to slightly 'give' when first sat on. If tacked on tightly - the canvas will 'mould' to the shape of the body to give a more relaxed and comfortable seat. This is totally normal and the strength of the fabric is not compromised in any way.
