I was going to sew this weekend. But Friday night, my girls arrived home to celebrate my birthday a few days early, bearing gifts of chocolate and flowers.
Also on Friday, I spotted a dining set in the want ads for $60. So on Saturday, the girls and I piled into Dan's truck, and went to buy it. It was a great bargain, with a scalloped oval table top (and custom cut glass which fits over this top), 2 side chairs and 2 arm chairs. Plus, it is a Basset set, so it isn't likely to fall apart next year.
Of course, the girls didn't care for the original tan velour seats, so a trip to buy new fabric was in order. Mom's an expert at recovering chair seats, so, of course, Mom wielded the staple gun. Everyone loved the results. (After on the left, before on the right).
The end result was pretty nice, don't you think?
Since they came up in the small car, the girls could only bring 2 chairs back to Philly. But I find that cheering, because it means they'll be forced to come back soon for the rest of their furniture!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
