Hi all! Sorry it has been SO long since I’ve posted. I have been extremely busy with work and getting settled in the Queen City. However I am FINALLY ready to start blogging about new new life!
For my first real post I want to share about my kitchen set makeover! I found a great dining room set at a consignment store for an amazing price! The only problem was the seat cushions… Yuck!
Needless to say, this had to go! I wanted to recover the cushions with a really bright, colorful fabric since most of my kitchen is painted white. I also wanted the fabric to match some pictures I had hanging up in the dining area. I ended up choosing this fabric:
Much better! After the fabric was ready it was time to recover the cushions! Since the old fabric on the cushions was really old and gross, I decided to recover the cushions with an old table cloth first. I covered all the cushions with the table cloth inside out using a staple gun…
The next step was covering the cushions with the new fabric! Basically I repeated the process of covering the cushions with the fabric and securing the fabric with a staple gun.
Here is a finish cushion:
aaaaaand Ta-Da! Here is the finished product!
I was really happy with the way it turned out! Since I am new to the world of DIY projects, I was a little nervous about taking this project on at first. However, it ended up being super quick and easy! I am going to start documenting more DIY projects, sharing marketing trends, decorating info, and more. I am going to leave you guys with a picture of my new dining area. Enjoy!
