Children's Chairs Makeover

These days, kids tables and chairs seem to be built with particle board or plastic. I'm not a fan, so when I found this wooden table, I knew I needed the right chairs. I had these metal chairs that were covered in yellow plastic and realized these would be perfect with the table.

These chairs are great to wipe down because of the plastic cover. I could have gone that route, but I probably wouldn't have liked it. I wanted a bold and fun fabric to complement the table. I removed the top pad and seat cushion. Afterwards, I gave the chair frame a good wipe down and spray painted in Krylon primer and paint in white.

I found this fun fabric one day walking through Walmart, and it was on sale for $3.00 for 2 yards. It's such a fun and bold print I couldn't pass it up.  This part is so easy and I forgot to take pictures of the step by step. Just trace around each section and add 1 inch extra. Once the fabric was cut, I stapled the new fabric. Voila! I love how these chairs turned out.

This is such a fun table now and my little one has enjoyed it as well. Remember to link up on my weekly party on Sunday's called Dishing It & Digging It! Have a great week.

Dishing It and Digging It Link Party #105

Each week we all work to share, comment and enjoy your creativity. Now let me turn this over to this week's host. 

Rustic & Refined

Hi Everyone! Ok, raise your hands if you're getting the summer heat. Ok, you don't have too, but give me a smile if you are. We have been getting record number of hot days here in Indiana, plus humidity. If you are mature (not old!) enough to remember Phyllis Diller? Then picture her hair on my face. So I have been pinning and pony tailing it like crazy around here.  In the afternoons I have been retreating inside so below shows you a couple of things I worked on.
