My husband and I noticed that our house looked plain and boring after all Christmas decors were put back in the boxes. We thought we needed something new around the house to make it more lively. A sofa or a wall decor perhaps? Well, we ended up window shopping for coffee tables and tv stands for flat screens. We found one coffee table that we really like but there was no available color that would match with the furniture that we already have. So, we decided to let it go for a while and go home. On our way home, we saw a fabric shop that was running a big sale. Aha! We knew then what we wanted. We bought a fabric to give our dining area a new look. And we spent only 7USD for that!
Here's my latest DIY project:
The glue gun did the trick! I burned my fingers but it made the six chairs looked well as how they were when we bought them. And with the 2-coat varnish, they were made to look even newer than they were.
Then came the fabric covering....
I have old drapes that I saved for recycling purposes. I thought they might do well as a chair cover or something but none passed my satisfaction for these chairs.
With the help of dh's gun tacker and my needle, I was able to finish my project after 2 late nights of work.
And I'm quite happy with the result.They surely gave a fresh new look inside the house.
