A Small Project: New Dining Room Seats

I stumbled across this photo and thought I would share this project.  My mother-in-law, who doesn't care for anything antique, does have an older antique table and chairs.  After spending 25+ christmas dinners sitting on this orange stripe fabric, I offered to redo it.

I picked a Jacobean print fabric.  I thought it went nicely with the ?? heavy style of the chairs.  The table is also very heavy.  I'll add a photo of it next time I'm over there.  Don't you think it is a great facelift?   I had to redo the webbing on the chairs, so it took me an entire weekend, I'm not the fastest.  If I hadn't done the webbing, it would have only been a couple of hours.

It goes to show what you can do to beautify your home.  The important part is--the family was delighted with it.
