Bah-bye, classy glass-top, see you when I’m 50.
We finally got our new dining set. It’s all assembled and found itself a nice spot in the newly (almost)rearranged living room.
I want to repaint this set eventually, I just don’t think I can take this project on right now. So I simply decided to reupholster the chairs, just to breath some fresh air and lighten up the mood into the grouch. I found some cheerful fabric at a local sewing store and put it right over the black leather. You can call me lazy, but when I spill something on the chair, I’ll be the last to laugh.
About one hour and one thousand staples later :
And my favorite before and after:
The set looks so fresh, I love it. It adds color and coziness to our living room… You know I will be eating, reading, and typing blogs from this very location. Plus, I get to enjoy our lake view.
As you can see, I got carried away with the green a little bit… I just couldn’t contain myself…
(So I just plopped the left-over fabric on the table, so it looks a little raggedy… I promise I made a decent place mat out of this, I’ll share that one later.)
What thinks you? Would you want to come and have dinner with us? We promise to sit you on the chair facing the lake
Natty Tip of the Day:
If you want to prevent mustiness in your stacks of towels and sheets,
place an open box of baking soda alongside.
