Hi Peeps! Happy Tuesday!
Just kiddin'...sounded like E there for a minute...I gave her the day off, so I'm fillin' in for her (don't worry bloggy boss, i have permission :)
So I'm back with Chapter 2 in the long saga of Re-Model Posts (the doll house drama's got nothin' on what's comin') (heehee)
Grab your mornin' cup o' somethin' warm and read on...
Step 1 • Prime with grey colored Gripper (2 coats)
Step 2 • Paint with Behr Premium Plus Interior High Gloss Enamel/Black (2coats)
Step 3 • Minwax Gloss Lacquer tabletop (4 coats)
Materials for chairback covers:
•1 yard of fabric
•1 yard of heavyweight fabric
(you might be able to get 2 chair backs out of one yard
depending on the size of your chairs)
(mine were from Joann's, you can also use D rings, but that was too small for me I wanted something big and chunky...go big or go home right Nel?!)
My inspiration for these chair back covers were from Two Shades of Pink...
I didn't use place mats since my chairs were larger, but any fabric will work as long as you have a backing fabric, something of heavy weight to make it more sturdy...we used a beige colored denim.
The purse handles came in a natural wood color, that I spray painted the same color as my refurbished chairs.
We cut out fabric to the measurements of the chairs...
Aunt P. sewed the back and the front right sides together, then turned them right side out and topstiched over the entire rectangle...
We made to strips from the leftover denim and made one a loop to secure the rings and the other a straight strip to feed through the rings...(she topstiched over the strips before sewing them onto the back of the material)
Wrap around chair backs and feed strip through handles like you would a D ring belt...
I am really excited about the final result for the whole dining room area...it's shapin' up!
The End ♥
