Finished covering the risers while watching the Daytona 500

Posted By on February 18, 2018


Sunday was the perfect day to finish up “covering” the lifts for the rear row of our new home theater seats. Now all 8 seats have a great view … even in recline mode. After building the “boxes” a week or so ago, I picked up some closeout brown polyester outdoor furniture upholstery material at Sailrite (shipping was as much as the material!) After cutting with a hot knife and using a combination of hot glue and staples, the covering looks pretty good, although one of the samples I ordered just in case, would have been a perfect match.

Brenda has not given it her seal of approval yet, but since she is calling this primarily sports and movie watching room a “man cave,” I suspect she’ll be ok with it.
