Not having fun at all…

Here it is Monday and I have the day off and what am I doing but torturing myself my recovering the cushions on these chairs.  I know…they aren’t even nice chairs or anything I would ever pick out today, but it’s what we have at our kitchen table and they are here to stay for a while longer.  The original 16 year old cushions are filthy and getting dirtier by the second with a three year old in the house. 

I picked up some home decor fabric and waala, a vast improvement!  I’ll tell you though, getting all that fabric wrapped and stapled around the old cushions so it’s not wrinkled and bulging is NO EASY FEAT and no fun at all.  I think my chair covered days are over.

Here’s a pick I snapped of Lauren at the play center.  I just think her face looks so sweet in this…

Great job! A few years ago in her pre-Tate days, Lisa helped me recover some chairs I had that looked a lot like that. It was a lot of work and SHE did a great job! ; )

Sweet pic of Lauren taking in life around her.

Great job recovering the chairs! Haven't tried that one and it sounds like it's a job I shouldn't. :o)
