It all started on Friday when I got rid of the Christmas tablecloth on the kitchen table......about time, right? lolz
I sewed up a spiffy new summery tablecloth.....
And put it under vinyl.......
Then I took one of the nasty and stained seats off of the chairs......
And recovered it in matching fabric with vinyl covering, then reattached the seat to the chair.
By Saturday evening I had done 4 of the chairs and this project was completed!
Looks a lot better, don't it?
I have 2 extra chairs but their seats aren't in bad shape and I don't use them in the kitchen with the other ones. I may go ahead and purchase another 3/4 yard of fabric so I can cover those chair cushions/seats eventually. I can always use that fabric to make throw pillows for the living room if I don't end up recovering those seats/cushions before the other 4 get beat to hell. But I'll wait until the fabric goes on sale again. 8-)
Also on Saturday I went and picked up the last of the soda for the party. I had a $5 off $25 coupon for Dollar General(the sad store)so we are stocked up on sugary carbonated drinks for the crew.
Then we rented a power washer and de-molded (or as Jane would say de-moulded)the siding on the house and cleaned the French doors, window screens and the deck.
I also emptied the pool deck box and then scrubbed it good with a bleachy cleaner and now it almost looks presentable. lolz
Here's my best Bonnie & Clyde type pose with my big gun.....hehehe
And here is the backside of the house now that it's nice and pretty.....
I had Hubs also pick up 2 lime green Adirondack at Lowe's when he went out on Saturday.
Yah, an impulse buy for $36.
Now we don't have to drag out the canvas camp every time we want to make a fire. We can leave these out in the elements and the canvas chairs can be extras for when we have company.
Then on Sunday morning I got an email from Overstock that the lime green leather club chair I wanted to buy(which was out of stock for months)was available again, so I hopped right on that and bought it.
I'll cross my fingers that it arrives before the graduation on Friday. If not, that's ok too.
Sunday I worked on the living room curtains when I wasn't trying to clean the house and move junk around and clear off the bed in my "fabric lair".
We also got 2 boxes of stuff in the car for Salvation Army ready to go the next time we are over there.
By the time everyone leaves on Sunday I will need a week in bed!
So between mold(or mould for my Canadian friends) and assorted chairs, I have a very green weekend, didn't I? 8-)))
Let's close with a shot of my peonies as they finally decided to bloom this weekend.....
So what have you been up to lately?
