We’re on the move! My partner and I have just spent a couple of hectic weeks clearing out and cleaning our rental property and now we’re all settled in our perfect new home – a picturesque 1930s bungalow right near our childhood school. We’re still without broadband, so I’m lovingly bringing a few posts this weekend via my mobile, so this could take a while…
We have been fortuitous enough to inherit some special furniture from my Nanna, including a gorgeous dark timber sideboard, dining table and chairs. Whilst the sideboard and table don’t need a thing done to them, I thought I’d give the chairs a bit of a face lift.
In a lucky break for me, this was a pretty ‘quick and dirty’ hack – the cushions in the chairs just pop right out, so I didn’t even need to get my hands on a staple gun (although halfway through I realised that some dressmakers’ pins made life easier).
I decided to go for a simple navy material to match my Nanna’s nautical placemat set and a bunch of navy and white striped seat cushions I picked up from Target a few weeks back. The material alone looks quick cute though, and it only set me back $6.99 / metre – this was enough for the six seats.
