A Whole New Feel

Well, it certainly look as if I'm only good for one blog post a week here lately. I wish to do more, but it just doesn't fit into the schedule along with student teaching and wedding planning.

For the past year, I've been wanting to re-upholster my dining room chairs that I bought to match the table, buffet, and china cabinet I bought from my grandmother. When I bought the chairs, I H-A-T-E-D the fabric someone had put on the seat cushions. You can see why below...

I never liked this fabric, so I was constantly looking for fabric. I bought a fabric {which I hate now}. Thus the reason I never re-upholstered it. I finally found the perfect fabric. I was at my favorite store in Brewton, The Hourglass, at their warehouse sale. They {unfortunately} closed down and were getting rid of the remaining items they had for little to nothing.

This is the fabric I found...

I knew it was not a cheap fabric when I saw it. It was a remnant that Becki had left over from a job she did for a client, and I snatched it up for $3 {I believe}. It was 2 yards of this fabric.

Today, I {finally} re-upholstered my dining room chairs, and I'm in love all over again. They feel so wonderful to the touch and to your behind.

Below is a photo of the after:

While I was at the Hourglass, I also picked up some fabric samples that she had for sale. I think I paid 33 cents for each one. The company discontinued the fabrics and told ehr to just throw the samples away. She decided they were too good to just throw away and that someone might could use them.

Apparently, that someone was me. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with all of these, but I'm sure I can come up with something creative.

I suppose we'll just see what comes out of all of this fabric. I can't wait to see myself!

Hope everyone has a great week!

  1. You did a great job! It looks superb. I love the other fabrics you found too. My wheels are turning for projects to use them with. Happy Monday.
