(thank you kristy...i love them)My dining room table is a antique passed down from generation to generation then to me! I love old stuff that still works and looks new and updated.
I think thats called upcycling? lol
the yellow and black pliers are what i used to rip out all the staples
(my mom let me borrow it) I made due with what i had. See the cording(white) just tuck it in and sew....easy
right? lol I stapled the cording around the edges and done....you can see i even used the selvage of the fabric on the under side. I try to use all the fabric i can to not waste!
this is a corner of the chair and you can see my fabric. i love this lime green color perfect for my floral bright rug.
2 down 2 to go!!! the Paint.....I sprayed one coat of white primer on all the chairs....this was a waste of time. SO then i primed it by hand one chair at a time. I used kilz water based primer 2 coats of that (let dry between coats) and then i sprayed an off white for the finishing color. I am still going to send these to my husbands countertop shop to get a spray of laquer. i distressed the edges a little and thats it!
This is what i woke up to today! (my heart pitter patters) My sweet cowboy is the best! I am so blessed to have him in my life. (even if we have our bad days)He helps me when i get a little stressed and he loves me even if i am a crazy lady with all these ideas! It's been 7 years to the day he asked to marry me (in his little 1970's honda civic..lol) oh the good ole' days with the great gas mileage. Love you babe hope we have many more v-days together.
thanks for the link up ladies!
