Because I’m cheep and impatient (I’d have to all the way into to Columbus or wait for it to be shipped and it did cost $30 after all), I did what any girl would do… googled “how to make an upholstery webbing stretcher.”
It won’t win a beauty contest, but it works! I used a scrap of board, leftover construction nails, craft glue and a bit of the webbing.
- Clip the heads of the nails off with a bolt cutter
- Drill holes in the cut end of the board and add glue
- Insert the nails pointy ends out
- Tack a bit of webbing on the other end to protect the furniture
And now a cute little chair complete with a seat that you won’t fall through!
