Thanks so much everyone!

manycrafter: I didn't actually put any extra padding on the chairs because there was another layer under the vinyl that I took off and I just used that. I didn't want to have to buy anything for the project! I'm not sure how good of a decision that will be in the long run, but for now its holding up great. It seems like most people either cut 1/2" foam into the shape of the chair and then cover it with batting or just use batting alone under the fabric. In case your not a quilter, batting is the stuff they put between the top and bottom of the quilt to make it warm and you can buy it by the yard most places. You can just cover the seat with that stuff and staple it down before you cover it up with fabric. Hope that helps!

I'm always in awe of furniture redos. I'm hoping to be able to do this some day.

  Great Job... I KNOW from experience that this was hard work, but well worth it! Now you need to make some Oval shaped placemats to go with it!

What a great project. If I'd just come over & seen them I would have guessed they came from an expensive artsy boutique, not something you redid yourself. They turned out so modern yet feminine--I just love them.
