This is why the old dining room chairs are nice, in theory… I have to give them credit, they are very well made. Sturdy as can be. But, I just think the fabric on them is a little out of date. That, and they have been well used- the paint is highly scuffed & worn (and not in the “shabby chic” sorta way). I LOVE that we have them for extra seating, but they aren’t quite up to par with our vision for the dining room!
ON a shopping trip for another purpose- I couldn’t help but oogle the fun prints that IKEA has on their by-the-yard fabrics. 2 yards somehow made their way home with me… and once they arrived home- they were promptly put to work.
Here is the finished cushion.
The next step will be to sand & paint the chair frames. Then- they will be happily invited to join us at the dining table!
