When we moved into our apartment back in December,
we had almost everything we needed.
We had bought a brand new set of couches and coffee tables
and also a new queen size mattress
but one thing we didn't have was a table.
We weren't too concerned about buying an expensive table.
We didn't have much room for a nice big table like we wanted anyways
so we bought a cheap table from Walmart and agreed
it would be a porch table when we move.
The table was supposed to be $115
but when we went to pick out the table
we found one in the back of the stack priced for only $99
exact same table just older model.
Cant say no to saving a few dollars!!
The table has done well by us,
but we don't really like it.
AND IT SHOWS!
The table currently is covered in my crafts.
It has paint, hot glue, and other scuffs all over it and the chairs get FILTHY!!
My daughters chair especially.
I wish I would have taken a pic before I shampooed them
The fabric is kind of a cheap form of microfiber/suede type stuff...
Well, after having to clean them for the umpteenth time
I decided to recover them.
The biggest impact on this project was the fact that i didn't want to spend much.
I thought and thought, and came up with a solution
I considered using oilcloth, but I don't have a fabric store nearby that carries it.
Plus, it would be a bit too expensive for my budget
A Table Cloth!!
I attached the vinyl to the chair using the tacks
and re attached the seat to the chair
Here is the before
and here is the after
The after definitely has much more personality
and it brings a bit more life to the area
