Look! I'm an upholsterer, too!

Thanks to Jilly and her phone call about the 50% off sale on fabric at Joann's yesterday ... I have "new" chairs! They aren't actually new, but they now have fabric that matches the couch, couch pillows, my entry table and my barrel chairs.

I've never changed the fabric on seat cushions, but after about 3 hours yesterday, I realized I could do it all on my own! Yippee!

Here they are before. Mom picked this fabric and it was cute, but it didn't really match my stuff.

The steps it took to get them recovered.

And the finished product! Cute, n'est-ce pas?

Pin It!

Good job, Bets. Now you know why you need to resist the temptation to EVER buy chairs that don't have slip seats. One of the best lessons my dad ever passed along ...

Do the horizontal stripes make my butt look bigger?
