Giving My Chairs A Make-Over

I have had my kitchen table and chairs for about 10 or 11 years now.  I still like the set so I was trying to make it last a little longer.  I was however not in LIKE of the upholstery on the chairs.  After having kids the chair cushions started taking a quick turn for the worst. The fabric was way too light and every speck of dirt and spill showed up way too much!

I was shopping at Hobby Lobby several months ago, when I came across two 1 yard remnant rolls.  The rolls were around $4.00 each.  I looked around and found out that this material had originally been $20.00 a yard.  SO, I scored this awesome fabric for $8.00 for 2 yards!  That means it cost me about $2.00 a chair!  Can’t beat that!

Here is one of the chairs before the redo,


Here is one of the chairs after the redo.


WOW!  Can you believe the difference that made in these chairs?!?!  If you have a chair or a cushion that needs to be recovered…go ahead and give it a try!  It will make you feel like you have a brand new piece of furniture!

Have a Happy Monday!
