Over the Memorial weekend, the hubs and I got ton's of projects finished. By the end of each day we were exhausted. This was a little project that I have wanted to tackle for awhile. My poor dining room chairs were crying out to me to recover them. Between my own kids and all the daycare kids that i watch, the chairs have been destroyed. I've tried all types of cleaners to remove the stains. It worked for awhile, but I think the fabric had it's fill and wasn't going to release any more stains. After I found some fabric I liked, I convinced Justin to let my use his staple gun and got to work. I recovered all six chairs with the new fabric and then took four chairs and covered the seats in plastic. I know, plastic will not be getting me into any fashion magazine anytime soon. That plastic will save my new covers for a very long time. My husband kept giving me all kinds of complements. I told him I want a staple gun of my own now =) Do they come in pink or purple?
I'm showing you one of the nicest chairs. I wanted to spare all of you the pictures of the really nasty ones.) The husband has been warned. If he spills on his seat, it's getting a plastic cover!As you can see the plastic is not super pretty, but do you see all the crumbs on the chair from breakfast. Um yeah, the plastic has already came in handy.
