Wow that is one amazing transformation! Like day and night! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Absolutely amazing! I love the coordination between the fabric and design on the table. The fabric is to die for -- mind sharing where it's from? Great, great job!

I just LOVE IT!!!!!  What a  great job...I am currently on the hunt for a new dining room table and this gives me so many ideas, and the tips are very helpful...THANKS...I would also love to know the name of the fabric you chose...it is super cute.  Let us know what your husband thinks of it!
It seems that different people have an idea of what I am, and what I should be. And then there's me.

The fabric is to die for -- mind sharing where it's from?

I picked it up almost a year ago at Hancock Fabrics, in their home decor fabrics department. It's a pretty thick weave, and it's called "Harmony" by DIVERSITEX Kingway. I think it was like $15 - 20 per yard, and it took just less than a yard to recover the chairs. Funny story: Last year, I picked up enough to recover these chairs and our bench in the hallway. But after I recovered the bench, my husband moaned and groaned about how it was GIRLY and had FLOWERS and he wanted his house to look MANLY. Fast forward to almost a year later, and he asks "What fabric are you going to use to recover the chairs? It should be the same fabric that you used on the bench. I like that fabric."

Lesson: No matter what I do to decorate the house, he's going to protest but eventually like it. So he needs to just agree with me in the first place AMIRIGHT?

Anyway, I still see the fabric at Hancock every once in a while. The best part about the fabric is it's pretty easy to get pet hair off of. The chairs were previously covered in canvas and hair stuck to that like glue.

I have a website where my friends and I post craft stuff. Please visit! http://theneatery.wordpress.com
