Chair Revival!

Steph transferred her cold to me, so I was sick all weekend. I am starting to feel better, but not 100% yet. I've also developed a cough, which is worrisome. Anyhoo, last night I was so tired of lying around in my sickyness that I had a crazed bout of activity. I recovered the dining room chairs and made chicken soup.

Icky old covering on the left, pretty new fabric on the right. You can't tell from the picture, but the old blue velvet fabric was gross...just covered in stains. It's the curse of getting something for nothing, I suppose. I like putting my own spin on things anyway, so it's fine really. It was very easy to do. The only tools required are fabric shears, a staple gun, and a screwdriver. Next I want to redo the finish on these chairs.

Beautiful! Where do you buy your fabric?

Spool in Philly, but of course!
