Hello! I'm Suzannah, a serious DIYer. Follow along with my DIY fixer upper house renovations, sewing and crafty projects, real food recipes, and de-stressing goals. I'm a recovering former vegan and vegetarian, now healing with a nutrient-dense mostly Paleo diet, and love at-home CrossFit and yoga workouts. I'm also the author of DIY Wardrobe Makeovers!

Finally finished the chairs!

I just screwed in the last chair seat of my table and chairs set.  The set isn't completely done yet since I have to paint the table still and am a little intimidated by this task, but I got the seat covers sewn and stapled on all six chairs.  Check out a couple of the side chairs:

Eeee!  Yay.  The print is a Waverly floral from JoAnn clearance ($4.50 a yard!), although it's still full price ($29.99 a yard) at the other JoAnn and from special order there.  I have a lot of extra so I will have to do something coordinating but not too matchy-matchy.  The backs of the chairs are a coordinating acetate, sort of changeable, about $3 at JoAnn clearance.  The braid is the cheapey, ubiquitous home dec braid, but in a cool matching color, from Mill End.  This project required a lot of staples and hot glue.
Look at the "before" on them:

Aren't they hideous, in the 90's dark green/maroon plaid and floral?  I think so.  I am not 100% happy with my recovering and painting job, but it is a huge improvement!

After I tackle painting the table and leaves, I can finish up decorating the dining room (finally)!


  1. Love the new chairs!! The fabric is great! Definitely better than the plaid and floral. ;)
