Project Chair

It's time for an update...on our chairs that is. Nic and I have said since we got married that we wanted to reupholster our dining room table chairs. We headed to JoAnn's on Saturday - picked out material - bought a staple gun (that ended up breaking) - headed to work. We only got 2 chairs done and Nic did most of the work. haha I tried helping him, but it was easier for him to do it by himself. haha
This is the chair before...
This is the cushion after Nic took it apart...
The material we picked out - browns, tans, and teals
Let's begin!
The finished project (the back that is)
Ta - da! They look so much better if I do say so myself.
I mentioned that our staple gun broke...that's not technically true. We can still use it - it still spits out staples, but there is a mechanism that doesn't quite work well. We are going to take it back and get our $30 back! You don't spend $30 on a staple gun - spit a few staples out and then have it break on you! Lame. PS don't ask me why part of this post is underlined - it just is. haha

It's not that hard is it?! I love that it's super easy, pretty cheap, and totally gives a chair a new look. I remember helping mom when she did her bar stools. Well, I'm not sure I helped, but I was there. Anyways, they look great!
