First sorry for the no before picks. This is a dinning room set we bought while we were stationed in Turkey. After 2 kids, 3 moves since, and 9 yrs. the fabric was ruined.
Here was the interesting part when I started the first chair I cried. The fabric and cushions were glued and stapled to the chair!!! There was to just popping the seat part off. I had to rip off the fabric and trim and redu it the way they did!!!!!!!!! By the time I was done I was sooo sore. Anyway here it is.

After a few weeks away from that fabric I made a fabric basket for the table. I'll fill it later. That was kinda fun to sew.

First off, kudos to you for sticking with it, because your hard work definitely paid off!!  This is a gorgeous set and the fabric is beautiful, like it was just meant for your table and chairs!  The place mats and fabric bowl are pretty icing on the cake!  Fantastic job!  Cheesy

Murphy's Law and all--you did a great job.  I love the fabric you chose.

If you can read this, thank a teacher!

Thanks. The fabric I got on a steal. I ordered a different print that was on clearance from a fabric store online and after a week they emailed me and told me they were out that I could get another print for the same price plus gave me a 20% off coupon. I bought 8 yds at $38.29 with the shipping! Not bad for a print that was $18.95 a yard. Not to mention that it's the larger width so I have about 5 yds left.
