Did everyone have a good weekend? We sure did! Baby A had breakfast with Daddy yesterday morning which means mommy got to sleep in and I was awakened with Starbucks in bed! That was just what I needed from my 2 favorite people.
Over the weekend I was also productive and recovered my kitchen table chairs. Here's what the kitchen looked like before I started.
As you can see, the fabric was doing nothing for the space. The table, chairs, cushions, floors, and cabinets are all dark, so my goal was to lighten things up a bit. I had purchased this Dwell Studio fabric off of Fabric.com several months ago when I ordered other fabric , but had too many other projects going on to add another to my list. Alas, I can say they are done! It was very easy to do and only took about an hour for all 4. Here's the simple steps I followed:
1. Unscrew the cushion from the chair
2. Lay the cushion on the fabric upside down so the pattern is centered
3. Cut your fabric pieces
3. Recenter the cushion upside down and start stapling.
(Make sure to pull the fabric tight so you don't have creases)
4. Screw the cushion back into place when finished
5. Scotch Guard your cushions to protect against stains
This is a quick way to change up any chair in your home that has a removable cushion. Plus, it's a fun way to add pattern to a space. You can see that my cushions are actually noticeable now instead of blending in with the table. Plus, I'm really enjoying the brightness they add. For now, they are a great fix until we eventually purchase something different.
Last week I also created a gallery wall in the corner. Stay tuned for more on that.
So what do you think of the "kind of new" chairs? Have you recovered cushions for a quick fix?
