CSN Chair makeover

Hi everyone!!~ Hope all is well. I feel like I have not been on forever, but it's only been a couple of days. You remember the chairs I featured from CSN...well I sure like them a lot. However, there was just something about them, that was not me.  I am not much into wicker. I decided I would stain the chairs to a darker tone. Well that I did not care for either.  So the other day while browsing in Hobby Lobby I decided I would recover them.  Found this pretty, very durable fabric on clearance for $5.00 a yard.  Well that is all I needed so SOLD it was.
Check out the process.
                                                             This was the BEFORE
 The stain was not looking so good. I considered spray painting, but so glad I did not
                                                          This is more to my liking and style.

Halloween is right around the corner.  I have been busy planning and thinking of fun party ideas for my 13 year old's party. Last year was a big hit...this year they are a little older, so a bit more challenging! But HEY, I am fun so they will have FUN!!~ RIGHT????????? Well I hope so anyhow. Thanks for stopping by...see you soon.

Your chairs are fantastic! I give you credit for trying so many options!

I miss Halloween when my kids were younger. 13 is the perfect age! They are going to have the best time!

I really like the new covers too, but technically the original seats were rush seats, not wicker. (My grandparents used to cane chairs for a living.)

Nice redo!
I was looking at CSN today, trying to decide how to spend my win. :D

I really like the re-do, Debbie. I don't much care for that type of seat either. I don't know what it is -maybe they feel a tad Oriental flavored to me...could that be?? Anyway, they look great recovered..and you did a nice job. I imagine it was a bit tricky getting those babies to look that good because of the sag in the seat (not that YOUR seat is saggy-it's just the way those puppies were made).

I'm sure the kids will have a ball at your Halloween party. Fried brains, anyone? Anyone? xxoo Diana

See, you are crafty! I just did a post and almost put you in it. they are a real simple candle redo and I was going to write..."Debbiedoo could paint it blue"! then I thought even though I imagine that everyone in blog world know's you and how you like bright blue....Well, maybe they wouldn't get it LOL!

I would have never thought to cover the chairs that way! It looks awesome! YOU are awesome! I know you will come up with some fun stuff for the party! Those candles are too cute. I am terrified to leave any food like the chocolate chips out. Stinking palmetto bugs will find their way in no matter what. I will say that is the worst part of living in the "tropical" zone are the stinking bugs and snakes!

Oh yeah, your fun! You will be the cool "MOM" everyone wishes their Moms where! :) Nice job on the barstools. I liked the wicker that would have been me, but I can definately see "you" in them now! They look wonderful! Nice fabric too!

What a simple and easy redo! We are alike in the fact that we just can't seem to leave well enough alone! Why is that? The need to make things our own, I guess! And you did that! Great job!

I'm a red nut, so I think they couldn't be more perfect. How did you stop yourself from painting. Great restraint for you.

Those look sooo great Debbie! The fabric color is just perfect with the rest of the space and really warms up those stools. It cracks me up how many of us have been recovering chair cushions this week in blogland! Everyone is on the same wave length I guess. :-)
