Refreshing Our Dining Room Chairs
We tackled a big project this week!. We bought this dining room set three weeks before we married and I wish that I had thought about how easily the fabric on the chairs would be ruined and had chosen wooden seats instead. We decided to bring them to an upholstery shop to be redone as an anniversary gift to one another this past week, so I called and was given an estimate ($35 to $65 per chair depending on the fabric we chose) and told to unscrew the seats and bring them in. When we removed the seats, we saw that to recover this type of chair was just a matter of stapling new fabric to the frame and foam cushion. We bought a heavy duty stapler and staples ($45) on Wednesday and the fabric ($50) yesterday. My husband started the recovering process last night at about 8:30 and finished up at 11 pm. I absolutely love how they turned out! The fabric is soft and able to be wiped! I only wish that we had done this sooner!
