We have a set of dining room chairs that we really like. They're not fancy, but they're ours. We also have a set of children that we really love. They're also not fancy, but they're ours. Unfortunately, the children and the chairs have a contentious relationship, which results in terrible chair abuse.
These days, with the economy being what it is, we don't have the money to replace the chairs or to have them professionally mended.
That's ok, though, because we do have Knot Sew Crafty Mama!
It really does look better in person. Just don't turn over the seat cushion!
Oilcloth, duck tape, a staple gun. Is there nothing that can't be accomplished with such amazing tools and materials?
I know it doesn't look great, but it was more or less free, and I do think it looks better than shredded chair hanging all over the place. I'm hoping that it'll hold up until the children stop shredding everything in our house, or until I win the lottery and can buy new chairs--you know, to go with our new dream home on the French Riviera...
