Does anyone remember the picture I showed you of the dining area in my kitchen in one of my very first blog posts? It's okay if you don't remember. I tend to block out ugly things too. In case you forgot, here it WAS:
In addition to pics of the dining area update, I also wanted to show you how I redid my seat covers on my kitchen chairs.
Here is the original seat over. Not horrible, but pretty dated.
So I went to my local fabric store and asked for their home decor fabrics. I know these fabrics tend to be more expensive, but they end up looking beautiful and are equally durable.
I didn't even know where to begin. They had 3 aisles of home decor fabric!
Lucky for me, the young lady at the counter was very patient, and went around cutting me a million samples to bring home.
I brought my samples home a laid them out on my new rug. As busy as the rug is, I wanted something fairly simple for the seat covers.
This is where Garret's help was nice. I was pretty overwhelmed from the huge selection I had just looked at. He had fresh eyes, and helped me narrow it down to two. I, of course, made the final decision(hehe).
I hope you like it as much as I do!
