Recovery Complete

The fabric I ordered for my kitchen chairs came in last week. In true "Cook Fashion", Mom and I had the chairs recovered by lunch the next day. Well, mainly Mom recovered(though I have done it before) and I ensured that no children were stapled in the process.
I was happily surprised to find that though the fabric was laminated,
 it was about the same thickness as a normal cotton!

The "old" fabric...
Actually only 3 years old. This is mom's 3rd fabric on the table.

#1 Unscrew the chair pads.
#2 Position fabric and start stapling to back of pad! Pull it tight on 2 opposite side and then begin to work on the corners. Because the fabric was laminated it took a few more staples then normal.

 #3 Hammer the staples gently to ensure they are attached.

 #4 Trim extra fabric 

Time to add fabric #4!
  #5 Re-attach chair pads!

I am loving the end result! Bright and Cheery!... And wipable!!!!
