The plaid fabric covering our dining room chairs was great in the nineties — and before 20 kids ate breakfast, lunch and dinner on them for years!
The chairs were in desperate need of a makeover, so Vicki, Valerie and I made a trip to the fabric store to pick something new to recover the seats and use for coordinating curtains. We agreed on a nice green fabric that seemed like it would be neutral enough to stay in style for a while.
But with our busy schedules, the fabric sat neatly folded in a corner and the chairs seemed doomed to live in the past. About four days ago, all that changed.
One of the things I really appreciate about Vicki is her determination. In three days, she had reupholstered 18 chairs — despite taking care of a 1-year-old baby, packing for a trip, getting boys to football practice and attending her sons’ concert. She is amazing! Maybe the curtains will catch her attention next!
