The first project we tackled was a much needed update to our bar stool chairs. We bought them from Target when we moved in our house (2006). They held up great until our first pee-wee came along and helped us make every part of our house more of our home :-).
Let's take a look at our brand new chairs. Just $20 for their new look!
I purchased new fabric from Fabric.com it's called Premier Prints Gotcha Twill Storm at 7.48 a yard. I bought 2 yards just to be safe. Did I mention this is the third fabric I've ordered and finally I fell in love with one. I could have used just 1 yard. However, I'm thinking the extra fabric may come in handy since my little ones are both under the age of four. A lot of little spills coming my way yet!
Here's what we began with, and remember... I've had these for 6 years and they have went through some heavy wear and tear from two boys under the age of four.
Check it out...Eww - gross! Right?
It's was easy peasy to change out the fabric. We (pictured -Callen my demonstrator) took out all the screws first and saw that we could easily just put our new fabric over the old.
Then, we cut out a piece of fabric that gave us well over an inch to work with from each side. We used a staple gun to staple the fabric to the bottom of the chair. My husband stretched the fabric tight, while I stapled away.
I stapled the sides first, then we moved our way around to the front and onto the back. The corners took a little more elbow grease, as you have to fold the fabric over top to make sure you leave no creases. It was very easy and took 5 minutes per chair, but there were two of us tackling this project. Thanks to my hubby.
One last look at our new chairs!
