All you need is material, foam to plump up the seat, scissors, a staple-gun, lots of staples and in our case a steam iron to iron out the wrinkles in the burlap before cutting.
These are the before photos.
The chair covers were old and didn't match. I don't care that the chairs don't all match but the covers had to go. I wanted them all the same.
I'm pleased at how they turned out and I love that the natural colour of the burlap will go with many wall colours. It was quite easy with little fuss to cover the seats.
I had lots of help recovering the chairs and now someone is refusing to give up the french bread basket.
Orange Mandarin tea with honey as a reward.
OK...a few cookies, too. *grin*
Next it's to make a table-runner from the left-over material and shop for a new over-head lamp.
Hope your day was fun.
