New Chair Covers!

When my husband's cousin visited around Christmas time and I offered him a seat, I was extremely embarrassed at how stained the old brown suede swivel bar stools were. I had cleaned and washed and them countless times, but they were stained for sure. So I vowed right then to do something about it. I dug into my material boxes and found a grape/leaves/vine design and some thick plastic to place over it (to prevent any future stains due to our four kids) and then set to work. The seat was attached with four screws underneath, so it was easy to remove. I kept the original material on, but simply covered it with the new layers. Using an insane amount of staples from my husband's staple gun, I attached the new materials and then reattached the seat to the chair. Voila! "New" chairs! Price: $0!
