$5 canvas chairs get a new outfit

Finished sewing new cushions for my $5 chairs (that’s $5 for the pair of chairs)! I dyed this fun modern print yellow to tone the colors down. Happy with the results.  Oh so comfy and just the right height for the wee ones.  ~ Sean

    haha I didn’t realize it, but it looks like I magically turn my two kids into cushions!

      Thank you so much, Queenie! Your words are so encouraging. I’ve got several projects on queue to add. I know I enjoy seeing other before/afters, so that’s what I wanted to emphasize on this blog. I’ll be setting up a gallery for others to share their own before/afters. I’ll also set up an email where you can submit your own stories of refinishing. Your comment is firing me up to get a move on!
