I've been rather blog negligent this week. Life just happens sometimes, I guess. I did want to pop in to show you the latest evolution of my dining chairs. If you remember about a year ago, I started with these chairs. (there is eight of them and the table actually spreads to be a whole lot larger than is pictured here)
I painted and glazed them, and made slip covers for them.
And we lived happily ever after...until about a week ago. See, those slip covers turned out to be pretty annoying. They were forever needing to straightened and such. I don't like high maintenance things, the less fussing I have to do to something the better! I happened upon some khaki colored ticking and just loved it!
I think ticking has a nice old timey feel, and the neutral color and pattern can go with any decorating whims I happen to have.
I'm pretty happy with it. I sprayed all the seats with scotch guard after I finished covering them. Hopefully that will help keep them clean.
I think the lack of slip covers makes it look neater and cleaner too. Maybe the table will actually get redone at some point soon! I hope so! Well, enjoy the rest of this pretty Spring day!
