Recovering

I have been wanting to recover my dining room chairs forever now. When we bought them they were a nice crisp white, but 4 kids and a million breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and art projects later…well, they were just flat out ugly.

Wednesday morning my mom, Kota and I headed to Jo-Anne’s to buy some fabric to get the project started. I found some striped fabric that matched the color scheme in my dining room and at $6.49 a yard, I couldn’t pass it up!

As soon as we got home my mom pulled out the fabric to get started. Once both babies were asleep, she tackled the recovering part while I did the cleaning part. Man those chairs were filthy!

Here’s the before:

They are SOOO much better, don’t you think?

Time for the Tooth Fairy

So, Harper FINALLY lost his first tooth. It seems that he's a bit later than most kids but I wasn't worried since I've never met...
