Remember those chairs I got thrifting awhile back? Well, I finally got around to recovering them. It wasn't a matter of the fabric-that I had picked out
hours days after buying the chairs. (a steal at $5 a pop)
Speaking of the fabric, it's a lovely zig zag home dec fabric I got from my even lovelier sponsor, Tuft Love. Lovely, lovely, lovely.
I absolutely LOVE
ly the shade of blue and the zig zags. I was of course, drawn to the florals first-but forced myself to choose something different-and I'm so glad I did!
It was a pretty simple recover-I un-screwed the seats, pulled out the old staples and old fabric, bought some chair foam squares at Joann's for $3 a piece (on sale!), glued those to the chair seat, then cut fabric to fit, pulled the fabric tightly around and stapled it on. It didn't take too long-an hour or two?
Here's a Before:
Sorry about the fabulous backdrop for these pics. It's what I had to work with-our house has almost zero natural light. We're hoping to work on the backyard with our tax refund this year-here's to making those dollars STREETCH! It needs a lot of work.
So what do you think? (About the chairs, not the backyard. Please spare me from your thoughts on that, lol)
