2011 Projects

Now that we have started a new year, I wanted to post some of my completed projects from 2011. I have been working on my dining room for a long while in bits and pieces. One of the projects I did for the dining room was recovering my chairs. I love how easy this is.

Here is the before:

My kitty, Chelsea, wanted to be a model. You will find her in each picture.

I had these chairs in different rooms before hence the two different fabric choices. I loved these but when we had two dining chairs break, we had to pull these instead of forking out money for new chairs.

Here is the after:

I love the pattern. What I love about this fabric is it is indoor/outdoor fabric, so it is more sturdy. I thought this type of fabric would be great with a toddler eating at our table.

My next post will be the tranformation of my china cabinet.

What projects are you planning on for 2012?
