Our Breakfast Room Chairs Makeover


Hello everyone, I have been meaning to recover my breakfast chairs for quite some time. When I create tablescapes in the breakfast room, I have resorted to using pillow cases for my chairs. They make great chair covers and come in so many assorted colors and patterns.

I have decided using a neutral pattern would be a great option for  our chairs. Talk about perfect timing, Sam from Fabric Wholesale Direct emailed me to see if I was interested in writing a post about their fabrics and sharing  my project. Of course I jumped at the opportunity. They supplied  me with fabric of my choice.
Here is the before photos of my chairs.

I love how the chairs turned out.  The fabric is so rich  with great texture. Truly an elegant look for our Breakfast room. The former red limited me to using different tablescape colors.
It features a raised design and is double sided.
Here is an arm chair I re-covered years ago.  I love the richness, however it did limit my tablescapes.
My husband helped me strip the fabric off the chairs.  He actually removed most of the staples because my back started to hurt.  He supplied me with a staple gun and staples.  I cut the fabric out and started covering each chair seat.

Here's the first chair.  I saved the top part to finish after the seats were done.

When it came time to re-cover the top part of the chairs. I struggled with getting it to look great and fit in the groove. So I contacted the upholstery company that re-covered our patio chairs. They are a local company who did a fabulous job on our outdoor chairs.

Below is the patio chairs we had re-covered by All in One Upholstery.

I love how the chairs turned  out!  A nice change for our Breakfast room.

  1. What a beautiful, elegant and perfect fabric you chose! And of course you're right, the neutral colour will give you so much more scope when designing your tablescapes. I can see why you're pleased with the makeover!

  2. "Oh, but I like the chairs the way they are." - scroll on down - "HEY! I LOVE the new fabric!"What a wowza of a change!" I'm thinking about covering the squares in my coffered (is that how you spell it?) ceiling in fabric - not paint or wallpaper. Not sure if this is a good idea or not, but I'll definitely give Fabric Wholesale Direct a look. My choices of fabric are limited in a small town. - boo hoo, because I love smelling and browzing in fabric stores! - Thanks!

  3. Looks great, you know I love neutral colors, goes with everything, the perfect classic design! Bravo to your new refreshing look.

  4. A beautiful makeover for your chairs Linda! Love the texture and your choice of fabric, so pretty from behind with exposed backs too.

  5. They look great Lynne. Very elegant and classy. That’s the kind of fabric I would’ve chosen. I used to redo my dining room chairs regularly. Got to the point where they had too many holes in the wood frames from all the stapling. Good job
