More With Amy Butler Fabric

Several months ago, I bought a kitchen table at the thrift shop. It happened to come with 4 new chairs that, while still covered in plastic, must have dropped out of the back of the truck since they are a little dinged up. The chair cushions were covered in a cream-colored upholstery fabric, just perfect for three small children. Not! As you can see on the left, it didn't take long for the chairs to take on a somewhat 'weathered' look. I browsed on fabric.com (my new fav place to fabric shop) and found some Amy Butler laminated cotton. I almost went for a more conservative print, then I figured I might as well go big, or go home. I spend all this time thinking I want more color in my house, so now I have some in my kitchen. The project was easy enough, just remove the seat, stretch the new fabric tightly around and staple it down. The laminated cotton is so nice because it can be wiped clean very easily. Yay!


  1. Love it - definitely a great way to inject color! (And on a side note, oh how I miss the thrift shops of Bucks County!!)

  2. Those are awesome! I keep wanting to redo some furniture too.
