I loved everything about this room... especially the fabric on the chairs. So now the hunt for this fabric began.

So, I went onto Ebay and typed in "Waverly Idyllic Days Chocolate". Ten items came up, however most were valances and pillows. Then I saw the fabric and they were selling 2.25 yard for $13.00 + $7.00 shipping for a grand total of $20.00! I love these types of moments in life when you know something is meant to be. The exact item I was looking for in the exact yardage. So awesome (I was doing my happy dance at this point).
I'll tell you how easy it is...I had my ten year old daughter removing all the screws and then she would pass me the seat cushion and I would remove the fabric. I didn't even have to use pliers. I just pulled the fabric and it came off. The fabric I removed was fabric I had recovered the chairs with when we redid the kitchen. I never loved the fabric that much, but the colors had worked.
For the corners, I pull the corner fabric and staple. Then I take the other two sides and have them meet in the center and staple again. I then cut off the excess fabric.
Let me know what you think of my "new" dining chairs. Do you love them as much as I do?
