I managed to get another DIY project completed. Rather, I was forced to.
It all began with a dining room set. We inherited the dining set from J's grandmother. The chair fabric was pretty worn but the main furniture pieces was pretty solid so I decided to keep and use them in our dining room. Any way to save a buck!
So last Friday, I started to remove the old fabric.
On Saturday, I picked up the fabric and chair cushions from Walmart.
On Sunday, we picked up a heavy duty staple gun and staples from Home Depot.
Staple gun: $18.99
Well, things got quite busy since we were celebrating our anniversary so this project was put on hold.
However, because J had already unscrewed the chair bases and I had already started removing the cushion and fabric, J and I had to immediately finish the chair since we're having guests this weekend.
So while I put on the fabric and stapled it to the chair base, J screwed them back and helped with stapling when my hands got tired.
Here's the finished product.
It was a 2-hour effort but that kept us up until late on Wednesday night but it was worth it.
On Saturday, while I was out shopping, J put together this coat rack/sitting piece for our front door. This was a wedding gift. We can FINALLY use the items we received after 2-years of marriage :-).
We figured guests can sit there while they take off their shoes.
Furniture piece/mirror: Free
2-Baskets: $12.98 (I used a 40% off coupon I had for Michael's)
I purchased the baskets from Michael's on sale. On holds clean socks and the other will be used to put dirty socks.
While out shopping on Saturday, I found a nice set of towels at Wal-mart that I figured would look nice in the half bathroom downstairs. So I purchased them and put ribbons I already had at home (I keep ribbons from gift wrappings).
2-Towels: $9.96 total
On another note, here's a picture of our happy baby. Right before she proceeded to keep mommy and daddy up most of the night :-). I love love love that smile!
Hope you had a great week. Have an awesome weekend! I am looking forward to spending time with my family this weekend.
