I Made Maya Reupholster Chairs

OK, Healthy Living Kids just hooked our family up with this box-o-goodies of snacks that I immediately planted in a super-top-secret spot in my car so that I’d have life-saving treats to distract my kids with when there’s nothing but super-naughty options available…like, at tailgates, birthday parties, high school sporting events, and everything in between. They’ll send you monthly boxes full of activities, toys, and healthy snacks…that I’ll admit, I dipped into, myself πŸ˜‰ Thanks, you guys!

When you intentionally squeeze Mom out of the picture.

But, she makes her way in for another one.

Ben’s Comp Train Camp came over for lunch πŸ™‚

So did Harry’s butt.

Jonah made gluten-free pancakes. DAMN.

When she comes home from college for the weekend, she gets put to work.

And, wants to kill me. No, like, ACTUALLY.

These are the chairs that I grew up with at our kitchen table. When we moved in and got them, I put this fabric on them. I actually still love this fabric, but they got so dirty and I got sick of looking at it.

The grey is the material that was on when I was little. I found the fabric I originally replaced it with at high end fabric store, but decided to just try Jo Ann Fabrics this time.

I got this fabric, with TONS of extra, for $70 online and had it delivered right to our home. SO inexpensive, but could’ve done if for probably half the price if I had thought it through more. But, I’ll just save the extra to replace ones that get stained or make pillows or something.

Used, like, THOUSANDS of staples.

This made the biggest difference as the cushioning on the chairs has been there since I was a young teenager.

Literally, just laid the new fabric over all of this, stapled it all on, stapled on some dust covers to finish it off, and…

Put it all back together. Maya did all the hardware work, and I was on fabric and staples πŸ™‚

The whole thing took the two of us about 3 hours, and cost about $100 in total…but, could’ve been as little as $75.
