I have a set of 4 chairs that are family heirlooms which were handed down to me by my Mom 10 or so years ago. These were the same chairs that we used at our dining room table when I was a little girl.
Every so often, my Mom would remove the covers on the seats and with a staple gun replace the fabric to give it an updated look or to match a new piece of furniture or decorating she was currently into. I have continued this tradition, and every couple of years, I get new fabric to go on the chairs.
Well in the past few weeks, I went to Joann Fabrics and picked up enough material to cover all four chairs for around $9.00. They happened to have some really pretty striped material at a great price, and were running a coupon for 50% off.
For some reason, I thought it would cost much more than this, but to recover 4 chairs for only $9.00 was a great deal!
So my Mom came over yesterday and brought a staple gun to help me recover the chairs (actually she did all the work since I am about to have this baby any moment).
My Mom did a great job and I think the colors look great in my home. Now, I just need to have this baby, so I can start working on some other home improvement projects. :)
You would be surprised how many dining room chairs you can do this to for a quick updated and refreshed look.
Have you done this before? I would love to hear about your own projects as well.
FYI, if you are looking for fabric, make sure you grab an ad when you head into the store or check out the online coupons like these at Joann’s Fabric Coupons before you make your purchase. Why not take advantage of a discount!
