Yep, it's that time again. The dining room chairs need to be recovered. The padding inside has gone kaput! They just don't make padding like they used too. I mean geez, I thought I just did them....
I ran to JoAnn Fabrics this afternoon and lucky me the decorator fabrics were on sale! I took a stroll through all the bolts of fabrics - too light, too shiny, too much blue (sorry Sally), too red - I have a more brick/terra cotta color throughout, floral pattern too big, too busy, too plain, too thin - lots of fabrics I loved, but just not right for this application. Here is a swatch of the Capel braided rug that is under the table. The dining room table and chairs were hand crafted in Montana. The chairs are made of oak and are very solid. What I would really like is new sheath back chairs. I think that they would mimic the base nicely.
But for now, I have to re-do the chairs I have.
Here are a few photos of some fabrics that appealed to me. Please let me know which one you would chose.

These are readily available at JoAnn Fabrics.
Then I found these swatches online at http://www.cottagechicstore.com.
And Because of Blue Monday I am enclosing this photo of my lunch from our little shopping excursion this weekend. (Could this be the reason my seats are flat?)
Hope you have a nice day,
