Chair Recovery

Monday, December 1st, 2008

Guess what I did this weekend? Recovered my dining room chairs!
We picked them up at a thrift store about 6 months ago with every intention of recovering them nigh immediately… but, as my kindergarten progress report noted, I work at my own pace.

I’m not blame throwing or anything here, but things move a lot more slowly since Chris is just as opinionated as I am about Every. Single. Thing. WEEKS were spent going back and forth on the font for our wedding invitations, and each step taken in the house is even more of a struggle. FINALLY we agreed on a fabric and I think they look pret-ty good, if I do say so myself. If you’re interested, the winning fabric was Etsuko Furuya’s Echino – Bird and Flower in khaki.

So yes, chairs recovered. I no longer have to awkwardly explain the weird, faded out pastel jungle tapestry that we replaced. Maybe next year the chairs will even be refinished!
