More yellow chairs

We moved into a bigger house, and that meant we could get a bigger dining table! We found one second or third hand at a reasonable price, but the chairs looked a little sad, and couldn't compare to the comfort of our old ones. Nothing that can't be fixed! 

As with last time, there were SO MANY staples to remove from the bottoms of the chairs to get the cover off, but a few hours in front of the TV and the transformation was complete! 
I went to Clark rubber with one of the wooden bases and got foam cut to fit the chairs, for 6 chairs it was about $80. 
The old foam was quite thin and worn 

It's okay- the new foam will fix that! 

My first one needed to be undone and redone as it was too tight and pulled unevenly. 

Here they are! I love them! They brighten up the room so much! 
I still need to get more fabric protection spray (you can use the stuff that is designed to protect shoes from the weather) to reduce the likelihood of stains, spray on according to the instructions and let it dry, too easy! 
Next, some purse sewing!
Have a great day!

Welcome back!

It's been a shamefully long time since I came and blogged! Much has happened since October! 
I'd like to be a more regular blogger, so I will attempt to get into routine to ensure I've got something to write about at least once a week. And so I remember to write. 
Today, I'll share a photo I took from the plane when I was coming home to Hedland on Friday. 

Happy Sunday, God bless!
