Have you ever noticed the insane amount of staples that manufacturers use on things like chairs? Probably not, unless you’ve tried to bring an old chair back to life with new fabric.

That’s the case with my $12 goodwill chair that has been sitting in the corner of the garage for several months. Last night I dedicated some quality time to staple removal. I think the chair is 5 lbs lighter now that the staples have been taken out!

Here’s the progress so far….

Anyone got any super secret techniques for removing those super tough staples?

Next up – the back cushion, welting and the homestretch!
