Hi everyone,

Here are a couple of pics of the recovered bolster in our master stateroom. Previously it was covered in a bizarre pattern of pinks, peaches and light greens. Yikes. This is a whisper soft vinyl product purchased from a local JoAnn's store. It was very easy to work with and relatively inexpensive (probably the cheapest project on the boat that we've ever undertaken, that's for sure).

The bolster was screwed in with at least a dozen and a half screws but we put back in maybe half that many when we reattached it. It's a tight fit, and won't be going anywhere.

We were able to use the same backing and foam. We used the old fabric as a pattern and finished the entire re-cover job in a couple of hours total using an electric staple gun (two people).

Hi Becky,
Thanks for posting the pictures, the job looks great, and I love that color! Were the folds for the sectional pieces difficult to figure out? I'm redoing galley seating right now, but wanted to re-do a headboard that has the same sectional configuration. Anyway, great job, and have a good holiday weekend.

Hi Robyn,

Figuring out the folds wasn't bad. We "paid attention" to a couple as we pulled it apart, but it was along the lines of wrapping a present. It goes more smoothly with two people - one person to hold the fabric taught and one to run the staple gun (surprisingly, the captain let me take hold of the staple gun!! :p ). Please post some of your pictures when you're done, too!
