We foolishly purchased an ivory dining setting before we had children, having no idea how ridiculously messy tiny people could be. Now we know. I mean, why use a napkin when you can just wipe your hands all over the seat?
I have wanted to buy a new setting for a long while now, but decided to put it off until the kids are at an age where they won’t utterly destroy it. I am starting to realise that age never comes for boys.
I pulled a chair apart a few days ago and figured it couldn’t be too hard to reinvent the look. I have never attempted upholstery in my life, in fact I don’t know if I have even said the word out aloud until this week. A staple gun, a screwdriver, some scissors and wine and I’d be set. I went to the op shop to look for vintage dresses or drapes to give the chairs a new look without spending big bucks on new fabric.
This is what I found at the Op Shop.
Three down, three to go! Not perfect, but I had loads of fun – no sewing, knitting, crocheting or any of that hard stuff required!!! Thanks to Matt for the muscles when needed xx
