Coming to our house is a hazardous affair. We have had the same table and chairs for a number of years. The table is still in working order, all be it rather dirty. However, sitting on a chair is like playing Russian Roulette. On one particular day a rather unfortunate guest picked the wrong chair!
It was in a state of complete disrepair and ended up on the fire. The guest was fine apart from a rather sore bottom.
I have now decided to make it my mission to replace all the chairs, I have gone down the road of having mixed chairs, I am not sure if it is the right choice yet. We were in Midhurst the other day and I saw two old chairs for only five pounds each in a charity shop, the mission began!!
I also have a chair coming from my Mum and Dad, so that makes three, only another three to go!!
I chose this Cath Kidston fabric for these two, I think the others (when I have got them) are going to be covered in different plain colours to complement this fabric.
All I needed was a staple gun and some fabric protector
These were the chairs before covering
I roughly drew around the chair pad and cut out the fabric and then ironed
I love how this photo shows all the small holes from previous owners, I think these chairs have been covered many times during their life time.
I am pleased with the way they have turned out. I am in two minds to paint them white. What do you think?
