Do you ever have one of those weeks that you just don’t get much done and really don’t have motivation to? That was last week for me. I don’t know where my head was at, but I just couldn’t focus to do a project or get a post together.
Over the weekend we went to St.George to see an airshow – the boys loved it! It was a great break from the week and I was able to come back fresh. Oh, and we got waffles!! Such an amazing treat and takes me back to the year I spent as an exchange student in Belgium. Mmmm so good!
So I was finally able to tackle a project that has been on my list for a while – giving my kitchen chairs a makeover. They were looking pretty gross with food and water marks on the cushion, paint rubbed off, and wobbly as all get out.
I disassembled the chairs, glued them, and put them back together.
I borrowed a friend’s paint sprayer and saved a ton of time and trouble painting them. Then I used a brush to apply a coat of polycrylic to hopefully prevent future rubbing and peeling paint.
Then recovered the cushions. I actually ended up removing the red completely so it wouldn’t show through my new fabric.
Staple one side, then the opposite being sure to pull snuggly.
Then reattach to the chair and you’re done. I’m actually going to go pick up some clear vinyl to cover the seat in too so they don’t get so yucky looking so fast.
