I need to replace the material on the chairs. Do I just unscrew all the screws and take old Material in and ask for enough for 6 chair?

Yes it's so easy! Just get yourself a decent staple gun and some fabric, you may want some new foam as well if they have become a bit hard on the bum.

We also used a staple gun and covered our chairs in that wipe clean material from JohnLewis which you can also use for tablecloths. They have lasted ages

I love doing this! I have used 'fat quarters' of patchwork fabric that measure 50cm by 50cm.

I also buy fat quarters. I cover straight over the existing fabric using a staple gun.

I do it about once a year, usually with waterproof fabric from Ikea or similar.
I only take the old fabric off one to measure and use as a template and just cover over the old fabric on the rest.
It's very easy

We do this about once a year.

We have the Ikea INGOLF bar stools at our island, and I unscrewed them, added foam to the base and stapled gunned fabric over the top. Easy peasy!
