About a year ago when my husband and I first moved into together, we decided to use his full size kitchen table. My husband's table was a hand me down from his family and had spent its time in a few places with other guy roommates and in storage. The cushions were outdated and stained.
After moving in, I would hunt all over town for red chair cushions to cover the stains. I took measurements, but apparently most chair cushions were measured for the standard "one size fits all" chair bottoms. Not these chairs, they were extra wide. I actually like them that way, you can just forget finding chair cushions that are large enough to cover.
Well I don't know why it took me so long to figure it out, but I decided cover the old fabric with a new color.
And off to the fabric store I went. I purchased enough for 4 chair bottoms and got to work.
The labor was actually real easy. I had to remove 4 screws from the bottom of each chair and placed the cushion on the new fabric. I few folds and staples later, I had completely new chairs. Seriously, it took me less than an hour. Check it out:
Well, I'm off to see what else can use an update!
Until next time,
