The existing blue fabric has seen better days….and 12 years of hard use is evident.
But the chairs are sturdy and when I researched finding new ones….the cost was over the top!
I knew I could “just do it” myself…..
I have been keeping my eye out for the perfect fabric…..
The colors are perfect…
The geometric design coordinates well with the other elements in the space.
The cost was $7.99 a yard…..
I decided to take the leap!
I Enlisted the aid of my husband for dismantling the chairs….
I used my trusty compressor and stapler…..
Tugged, pulled, cut and stapled….
The colors in the photo don’t do them justice…..but you get the idea….the fabric swatch photo is a much truer color pallette.
And this is “command central” for my library lessons that integrate stories and technology!
Notice the color wave on the library desk in the background….with the circles of purple and the orange and gold wave…..truly a match!
I am getting rave reviews from most of my 600 critics…..although one little 3rd grade boy thinks they are “kind of busy” and a 4th grader thinks “plain would be better,,,,,go figure!?
Anyway….I will post more photos and a tutorial when I get more of them done….
I just needed to share while the project is still “FUN”…we will see when I am doing numbers 10-20!
My new motto is “One chair at a time….”
