Recovering Chairs
It's amazing how something so simple can change the look and feel of a room.
We were fortunate to be able to buy the dining room table, chairs and buffet from the previous owners.
It's a beautiful set but I wasn't in love with the chair cushions.
{I really wish I had a better before picture...but this was the previous fabric...}
I was wanting something that was more new, fresh, and light.
All it took was some strength to get the old fabric off and pull those staples out (by far the hardest part...but it really wasn't all that bad)...
Picking a new pretty fabric...
And going to town with the staple gone to put the new fabric on!
It's a light grayish upholstery linen from Calico Corners that-believe it or not-is pretty darn spill resistant.
They actually tested this fabric with pen, bbq sauce and all sorts of other things and it was all able to come out just fine!
I am so pleased with how they turned out. 
I truly believe that if you don't like the way something looks, change it.
With new paint or new fabric it is so easy to transform the same piece into something beautiful and something you love.
Happy Friday!
