Easy Chair Re-Do

A few months ago, I bought some fabric on clearance at the fabric store.  And, finally, this past weekend got around to recovering the dining room chairs.  Sometimes, it's the little things that can make me so happy!  But, the dining room set belongs to our church.  Most parsonages come completely furnished - so, we are very blessed to have furniture provided for our family.  Our home is a mix of personal and church furniture.  But, to give the chairs a little update, I changed out the fabric on the seat.  And, I just left the other fabric underneath in case the next family wanted to change it back.  But, SUCH an easy way to update a chair!  All you need is fabric and a staple gun.  So easy and a great way to freshen up a piece of furniture! Of course, if these were my personal chairs, I would paint them white!  But, for now, this is a fun, simple way to update. 

Before:
 After:
A fun, neutral pattern...light and simple.  And, it was $4/yard! Always check out the clearance/marked down sections in fabric stores - sometimes you can find just what you're looking for! 
And, it looks nice with our china - kate spade bonnabel place.  Which we use all the time - ok, maybe not!  But, it looks nice in the china cabinet!  One day...
