we have a dinning room set that got really dirty over the years with kids using them. i got some leather samples from freecycle and used them to reupholster the seats. so far just one done.

let me know what you think. Smiley

AFTER:


CLOSE UP:


at first i was going to do a crazy odd shapes, but after cutting them up for the first seat i knew it will be A LOT more work then to just do the brick look. so i will make a pillow out of the crazy triangle one. i'll post pics of that when its done.

Wow, that is gorgeous!   Shocked  It's amazing what reupholstering can do!  Your chair now looks brand new and very classy and modern.  Nice job!

That brick idea is really nice.  I have some exposed brickwork in my kitchen, so maybe I'll make some seat covers to mimic that.  Thanks for the inspiration!

I really love what you've done here!  The new cover looks fantastic - i'm so jealous.  Very good choice.

Love the leather bricks! Would the bricks look even better running up and down, to echo the chair back spindles?

Though they look good going side to side, too. Maybe two of each?
