Meet my latest project. And I totally understand if you have to look away.
It's pretty bad.
I didn't know the previous owner of my vintage dining room chairs but I think it's safe to say he or she may have chosen practical over pretty when deciding to cover the chair seats in what looks and feels like '70s carpet. Of the indoor-outdoor variety.
(I might also add that the leaves to the table were wrapped in pieces of variegated green shag carpet.)
Fortunately, the price for the entire set was extremely affordable (free!) so I got over it pretty quickly.
I've been browsing around for some vintage fabric to replace the carpet seats and finally found some on eBay that was large enough and met my criteria for price (low), color (brown), motif (floral) and age (old).
Unfortunately, that was almost a month ago and up until this afternoon, I was beginning to wonder if I would ever see it. Have you ever had that feeling about an eBay purchase?
But now it's here, safe and sound and in need of some ironing, I see, after loading the photo. All for $7.99 + free shipping.
I just need to unearth my staple gun out in the Garage Where Cars Can't Park. Although doesn't a shiny, new electric staple gun sound good? I don't know anything about them but I never let that stop me.
Here's one more weekend project. No staple gun required.
Have a rosy weekend!
