Weekend Project


I decided to re-cover my kitchen table chairs. They were looking so dirty and beat up in the white so I went with a really pretty tapestry fabric that I got on sale at Joann's for half price. The total cost for all 6 chairs was $40! Not bad for a makeover.
I've never upholstered anything in my life but I figured "how hard can it be"? It's really not that much different than covering a scrapbook album. Getting all of the corner edges tucked around smoothly is the trickiest part. Each one gets a little better after you practice a bit.

It's beautiful. Good for you. Practice does make each one go better.
