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,

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!
