Mini Project #2

The previous owners left us some nice (and some not so nice) furniture when they moved out. (Remember the teal conservatory set?). Fortunately, the dining room table was lovely although a little bit dated and dirty. With a little bit of work (and some major fabric searches), I've modernised the set to my liking.

The chairs.
Before:


After:


I managed to change all six seat covers in about an hour and a half. I just popped the bottoms out, removed the old covers and stapled the new ones on. Easy peasy (although it took a bit of muscle to get the staples out and the corners were a bit of a b#@$@).

My next little project is that gold floor lamp lurking in the background of this picture which I will hopefully be working on this weekend. Stay tuned for the grand unveiling.
