cHaNgE is GooD

Okay, so.
About 12 years ago I bought this table and chairs for my kitchen.

Over time the chairs became tired and dirty so eventually I bought some cute, cheap, black chairs to go around my kitchen table. Again, with time... I got tired of them...

Luckily, for whatever reason, we decided to save the old chairs that originally went with the table. They have been in the garage for a LONG time. I decided that I could bring in the old originals and recover the seat cushions!

I printed up a 50% off coupon and went to Jo-Ann's! After looking at many, many fabrics I got confused. My friend Kathy just happened to call me while I was trying to decide which fabric I loved (and would match what I already had so I would not cause a domino effect and have to redo MORE)! "Kathy" I begged, "Will you please come help me??!!!"

I think we picked just the perfect fabric!!! THANK YOU KATHY! I LOVE my "new" chairs!!!

Here is what the OLD, DIRTY, TIRED chairs looked like...
And, here is what my "new" chairs look like!


Change is good! AND, it doesn't have to cost you a ton of money!
