Should I continue?
Hi all!! My exams are over and it's the usual back-breaking Christmas rush for me, thank you all sooo much for your encouragement during my assignments and exams, I did my best and I hope for the best. Now it's time for my favorite time of the year, we've painted the entire exterior, I was too busy to help choose the color so I entrusted the hubby with it, and boy! did he ever go bright! Ah well, at least it's nice and clean, but ever so bright! I'll show you guys in a later post when the scaffolding and paint cans are cleared away.
That aside, there are a few projects that I decided to undertake at this 99th hour, one is to cover my dining room chairs and hang a chandileer, I decided that I've seen chairs covered a million times on HGTV and it looked simple enough, so yesterday I went over and got me some fabric, I wanted an almost white color to contrast with my dark dining set, because the fabric I bought it with is dark and now it just looks dreary to me.
So today armed with my trusty staple gun and scissors I set about covering my chairs, this is the first one, I am not blown away by my efforts and I feel the need to run to an upholsterer and have him finish the job, what do you think? The chair on the left is the original covering, and the white is what I did today
Above is a close up of my handiwork that is clearly not so handy!
