Little Things, Big Difference

I just love the feeling of getting stuff done. Kind of makes me feel like this
My friend once told me that the last 20% of a project takes 80% of the time. I completely agree and so would the numerous 80% completed projects that inhabit most of my closet space. So in the spirit of a new year and fresh starts and all that gobbledygook I decided to tackle something that has been bugging me.  So at 10 o'clock on Friday I tackled my dining room chairs.
I scored these babies at a garage sale. They are SUPER sturdy and just what I was looking for. However, the red, orange and yellow fabric I was not loving. The clear plastic on top of that was also a nice and very practical touch, but I just got the point and I was over it. I knew I wanted to recover them so when I spied some nice chenille on clearance at JoAnn's I snagged it up.
It was 4 bucks a yard. Recovering a chair cushion could not be easier: unscrew seat, lay on top of new fabric, staple fabric, rescrew seat. That is is exactly what I did. I'm thinking it took probably 2 hours for the whole project, but I get sidetracked easily.
The new fabric is so subtle and much "quieter" than the old fabric. 
As for the final results ~ I LOVE it.

Looks good! I have a stool I want to do - was it pretty easy?

The hardest part was finding the right kind of screwdriver :0)
You should go for it. Flip over the stool and you will see how straight forward the process it. Can't wait to see the results :0)
