I'm bound and determined to use all the bags I collected from my coffee supplier.
So far I've upholstered a wingback, recovered the seat of an ice cream parlor chair and given a bunch away.
Last week I tackled our four year old patio chairs. We registered for them and I'm sure it was one of those.. "well, what else can we scan??" moments at Pier 1. I think they were a great decision seeing how they have made the cut three times moving, once out of state, and now, they survive the dry Colorado air.
I was totally over the lavender seat covers so I decided to try my totally free alternative. And since I really love burlap + silk screen I count this a success.
You can do this the Ashley way:
Pro staple gun
the smart way:
Skinny dowel rods
Since the other involves a sewing machine you can guess which way I did this... (I totally recommend doing this with a sewing machine, the "smart way". Once my burlap rips or gets stained I have to tare staples out and totally recover this. I decided to finish the three remaining chairs I will phone a friend and get assistance in using my sewing contraption thingie)
More burlap goodness here! Updated 11/30/10
