How to Measure your Chair for Shaker Tape Yardage
Use This Formula
1. Measure the front rail between the posts in inches.
2. Measure from the center of the back rail to the center of the front rail in inches.
3. Multiply these together.
5. Order this number of yards to weave the chair in one color only. Or, order half this amount in each of 2 colors to weave a checkerboard colored chair seat.
Read this before you order: Dye lots vary from roll to roll.
Cut Shaker tape can NOT be returned. Colors are shown as representative of tape color, but not precise dye color.
Be sure to compare the cost of 1 roll with the cost of the number of yards. If you're buying more than 65 yds of 5/8" tape (69 yds, 1" tape), the 75 yard roll price is a better value.
Shaker Tape TIP: If these are Dining chairs, spray with Scotchguard to prevent food stains. (test bottom first)
