My Mother was the Queen of upholstery. Once, when visiting family up north she had to show off her mad skills. A cousin had just purchased a new to her set of chairs similar to these and was so concerned that the colors in the chair fabric was really not her style. After a quick trip the the fabric store and a couple of hours working on the chair, my cousin was overwhelmed with what my Mom did for her. This is one of the easist ways to transform a chair.

I have a set of dining room chairs that can use a little TLC. I know the hardest part for me will be selecting the fabric to use. I suppose in lieu of using laminated fabric I can purchase the vinyl to go over the fabric. By choosing only from the laminated family, I'll be making my selection very slim.

I have been recovering my dining chairs for a long time and I get tired of them a lot and they get so dirty so I run to my fabric store and pick out fabric and within two hours I have 4 of them done and it feels great. Makes it feel like a new table. And if you see some nice chairs at a thrift store or yard sale at a good price but you do not like the color of the seats just go buy some fabric and recover them. I myself have always used the stapled way to recover. It is really easy and fast once you do the first one. You can get at least 2 out of fabric width and depending on how long they are you should be able to get 4 out of 1 1/2 yards if not matching pattern. Never tried the sewing way but a great idea if you want to take off to wash. o yourself a favor and give it a try. You will be glad you did.
