We got a huge dining room set including a table with two leaves, 6 chairs, a hutch and a buffet all for a very cheap price. The wood is beautiful, but the fabric on the chairs was not so good. It's white. That's right, white fabric on dining chairs.

Here's a before:


I am putting red and white with shots of turquoise in our kitchen. I found a really great red and white cotton duck that's stain resistant at Walmart of all places! Here's one of the chairs with the new fabric:


(please excuse the mess in the background we just bought a house and are still unpacking)
This is much better than white stained seats!

What do you think?

I LOVE the fabric you picked, I think it really compliments the color of the wood.

Looks great! I've got to do this too. We've also got dining room chairs with a light colored, stain attracting fabric.

That's the exact fabric I bought to do my chairs. Great decorators think alike.

I thought it was cute at first but now it's just gorgeous!
I absolutely love the fabric- it goes well with the design and wood of the chair!
Great job Cheesy
