So...I've been caught up with a few things....sorry! You are not forgotten. I'm still here.
On a side note: the contest from the previous post for some exciting Sucker sticks ends Saturday. I will draw the winners that morning and mail them out. I'm sure you are on the edge of your seat.
Speaking of seats.....
We've had these chairs for over 6 years....they were getting a little crusty (as in dirty) around the edges. I would spot clean them on occasion, but with not any really great success.
And for my birthday I got a gift card for Hobby Lobby. Such a hard decision on what exactly to pick when you have free $$$. But I found this great fabric on the sale table for $5/yard. I was so proud of my self for finding the screw driver, figuring out how to get the seats off (actually it was 2 screws~a very easy process) and getting this project off the runway....
I headed out to the work bench in the very cold winter laden garage...(as in full of crap from the summer that we have not been able to use for 5 months) Navigating my way around bikes, flower pots, camping chairs, lawn furniture, well you get the picture.... finally arriving the work bench and found the staple gun! Now normally I would wait for my handy hubby to get home for the next part but because I am such a
impatient determined kinda gal.....I thought, Gee, why can't I do this?
I'll tell you why
because I couldn't even figure out how to load the stupid staple gun. Or find the right size staples for that matter.
So look at me with my scotch tape skills.
Now just so you know hubby did arrive home. He did ask me, "why didn't you just wait for me to help you?" and he did complete the project with staples, & they are perfect!
What a difference it makes to see happy clean fabric on my chairs. We now never allow people to sit on them, so they will stay this way.
