Patio Dining Set Makeover

Well, here's what I had to start with.  Peeling paint, 1970's faded yellow, BLAH.

Step 1:Paint
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!
