With the Open House schedule for tomorrow I took a look around the back porch and patio and saw that my 2 screened porch chairs had terrible water stains on them. I had treated these cusions with scotchguard but not waterproofing. I'll know better next time! I had some fabric upstairs in my craft closet that was going to be cut up and put in a quilt, but I thought these chairs needed immediate attention. I covered both bottom, top and footstool cushions with the same material. I used safety pins on the back to hold them on to the cushions. Even though I sew, this was such a quick fix I couldn't resist! I thought they turned out really well!
This is the chair before. The other one looked just as bad. I should have brought the cushions in for the winter but forgot to. When I realized they were getting wet it was too late the water stains had already set.
This is the chair up close after I got it all done.
This is the first chair all done up! I was so happy with it I decided to move to the next chair!
This is a closeup of the fabric I used. These look like brand new chairs with a little color!
This is the other chair all done! I'm glad they turned out so great!
This is the bracelet I made for myself today! I think I'm going to add some more things on it, but here it is for now! I'm going to wear it tonight when I go out with our friends for dinner and a movie. I made my friend some earrings for her birthday, but I forgot to take a pic of them before I wrapped them!
Everyone have a great weekend!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
