A few weeks ago dh and I bought 6 second hand dining chairs as our old ones for the last 14 years, had deteriorated. We only needed 6 as we have a church pew down one side of the dining table and needed 5 chairs to complete the setting.
Chairs are so expensive! But we found these lovely chairs in the newspaper and bought the lot for $150. The only trouble was the fabric seats. The fabric was stained and stripes are not my favourite pattern.
I had a queen sized fitted sheet that had never been used in a beautiful style called, "Botchelli" - I've always loved the pattern as it has a mediavel look about it, looking very similar to the intricate groundcover you would see in a mediavel tapesty. This was my chosen new fabric.
I've just finished covering each one and then for safety's sake, I covered it in a durable plastic as well to prevent pencil or marker scribbles. (and those inevitable tears by me!)
So what do you think?
