Well, here's what I had to start with. Peeling paint, 1970's faded yellow, BLAH.
Step 2: Make seat covers. Why? Because I don't want waffle booty.
I started by making ties to attach the covers to the chair.
Then I folded the ties in half and pinned the fabric for the covers right side together. I also left an opening at the bottom so I could turn it inside out.
Then I turned them right-side-out and topstitched. Done-zo!
And now, the new dining set:
Up next: re-cover the other chairs on my patio, make some placemats and coasters, and add some art. Whew! When I get one project done, 3 more pop up in its place!
