Yesterday I spent part of the afternoon recovering the seats on two of my four craft room chairs. My craft room table & chairs are an old vintage metal patio dining set that I dearly love. Now I love them even more! I used laminated cotton that I purchased from oilcraftaddict on Etsy, so they will be easy to clean.
The hardest part of the project was removing the old vinyl and staples. Once I got the seats stripped down to the wooden bases, I found that they were still in good shape. (Whew!) I replaced the foam pads, wrapped cotton batting around the pad and the base, and staple the batting to the base. Then I cut the fabric to size, laid the base on the back side of the fabric, and pulled it tight while I stapled the sides. The corners were tricky, but I think I'll have it down by the time I get to the fourth chair.
I really like the happy, striped fabric, and it pulls everything together: the yellow desk, tables, and chairs, the blue paint on the walls, the white shelving, and red accents that I have throughout the room. Two down, two to go!
