It wouldn't load the before photos for me. But I really like it. Nice job. And I love that fabric!!! Where did you get it! I just remodeled my living room...and those would make great pillows for my new room. =D 


fabricworm.com was the only place i could find that had enough of it. Its around $5.00 per HALF yard but its super soft and i think it was worth it.

That's awesome! It's a really great looking set. Can I ask how you scraped the paint off without scratching the glass?

I wiped the paint with a wet cloth let it sit for a min then used a reg razor blade to scrape it off. When its moist it came off in long ribbons but when it was dry it came off in tiny pieces. Which I still have all over my floor lol.


Thank you all for the wonderful comments Smiley I truly appreciate it.

This is my 1st big redo project and post.

I am so proud of how it turned out.

This is the table before


Scratching all the paint off the glass


It looked nice like this, but I had a plan!


Ready for the "frost" I used privacy film for showers. Super easy to put on.


Spray painted the table and chair legs.{primer, paint and clear coat} I wouldn't recommend doing that on anything that gets used roughly. We are hard on our furniture and its already scratching off badly. This summer I will probably strip and stain it.



Halfway there


Then my chair adventure began!

As I was trying to decide what fabric I wanted I tested my skills with some pink polka dot fabric I had on hand.
It turned out super cute.


I finely decided on a Alexander Henry, Midnight Pastoral natural black fabric

I made a huge sleeve for the back of the chair and stapled the bottom so it fit


The seat - corners 1st




Finished chair



And the most beautiful thing that I have every created (besides my children)




And here's an up close pic of the fabric itself. I love it!!!!



Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed!!

Erin.
