I was also rather intimidated by the idea of refelting my own pool table because I certainly didn’t want to mess it up. After seeing it done first-hand, I can assure you that refelting a pool table isn’t nearly as difficult as you might think. Especially if you’re only refelting the bed of the pool table. (The cushions are the most time consuming part of the process, but they aren’t that difficult either).
Check out the pictures, read the captions, relax, don’t rush, and pay attention to detail as you go. You’ll end up with a beautiful pool table that you can be proud of and you can save lots of money.

It is still in great condition though, and it seemed to make sense at the time to refelt this table as opposed to buying a new one. Not to mention trying to re-home this one.
