When are dining chairs considered “vintage” instead of just ugly and old? My dining chairs were definitely the latter. :) Just plain ugly!
I’ve blogged about these chairs before.
Here they are now. No1 and there’s also a No2
Update on the burlap. NOT great for sitting on every day. Even though we only use the table and chairs several times a year, because of the loose weave and the overall nature of burlap, the numbers are beginning to wear off.
So, then I thought “slipcovers!”
Which is when I made this one. I loved the way that it turned out. Well, except for the front, which needs ties to stay put. But I didn’t use a pattern. So months later, when I was ready to slip my other chairs, oops……I wasn’t quite sure that I could duplicate it. Sigh……..
This chair was next.
Drop clothes for the seat and white linen for the pleats.
Then, hey, why have any two alike, right?
So I ruffled the last one. With cotton lace.
Here are the backs. So……hands down, the fitted button back is the most functional and stays put the best.
So now that I’ve figured that out……:)
I guess I’m done. In the end, I really don’t mind the fact that they’re all different. And hey, it gave me something to blog about. :)
Have a wonderful weekend.
