Step 9: Repeat on other side

Repeat the same process on the other side. Since you've already got some practice, this is easier to do than the first time. MAke sure the two arms look even and symmetrical. Staple some more welding around the bottom edge, and then use some cheap fabric to cover the inside and finish it off. And you are done! It feels great afterwards!
The best way to stretch fabric when you're stapling it on is to start from the center and work to the outside; this will make it much less likely to have ripples.<br/><br/>Also... just a note: for people who have not done any upholstery before, START SIMPLE. Find some easy project (follow the basic steps of this instructable, but do it with something more like <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Re-upholster-an-old-chair-with-a-T-shirt/">This</a>)<br/>
