the chair before and after

If you ever came to my house in Maryland you know you remember my dinning room chairs.
They were a stupid purchase.
Ikea, you kinda failed me on this one.
I always new I was going to recover them I just didn't think it was going to take so long.
Now they are finished and I am ready to start having dinner parties here in Oregon. There was no way I was going to let strangers into my house with chairs like this. (Marylanders you don't count because by the time they looked this bad you were already family)

I believe at one point we needed to bribe Wyatt to sit in the chair.
Watercolor, spaghetti, chocolate milk. You name it and it's on there.


The best part is that they are laminated cotton, and can easily be wiped up after every meal. And have been multiple times. Plus I love the pattern. I bought the fabric here. All I did was cut the fabric three inches bigger around the edges and stapled to the back of the seat.
Now, who wants to come over for dinner?
