Happy Holidays everyone! I hope you are all in the holiday spirit, I know I will be in about two more days. I've been working on a never ending custom job & it is nearly finished. Then I'll get into the Holiday swing.
Now the dilemma with the chairs. I remembered Miss Mustard Seed had upholstered a caned back chair & used her tutorial as my guide, you can read about it here. We went to our local upholstery shop & got some great advice on cost effective material & some tricks of the trade. My Mom & I plan on taking an upholstery class after the holidays, my hubby said he'd like to take it too. It'd be nice to know exactly what we are doing when it comes to this upholstery stuff. Anyway, we used drop cloth fabric on the chairs. I of course had to add a graphic to the seat. I seen the perfect one at The Graphics Fairy & added it to all four chairs. Here is how they turned out.

All four in their new look....
I love the contrast of the white Gimp against the tan fabric, it really gives it that finished look.
One last look at all that hard work, approximately 25,000 staples & 500 glue sticks later....
