Dining chairs - before and after

After a few hours of work on my dining chairs they have a fresh face....It took the better part of the day to cut fabric and to staple it on to the frames. I used some batting to give a bit more support to the seat and now they are done! Strict orders have been given to mind the 'new' chairs, since they will be used at every meal...

And the bench had been done yesterday by me, trying out my skills and being quite happy with the results...

Now all I need is a manicure...
PS: And just click at House and Living above to see my recent acquisitions on Etsy and Ebay.

    I can see that you must be very proud of your efforts. Celebrate with a special meal, break bread, and enjoy christening those new cushions, just no spills, right!

  4. Jamilyn: Thank you, I am so in love with this bench fabric pattern.
    I was thinking of doing it allover, but apart from the expensive fabric I felt it would be nice to have something different and special.
    Francis: Thank you too, now when I see it, it is a bit like in disbelieve, that I've actually done it....
