Kitchen chair makeover

I have been very busy this weekend.  We are taking a little mini vacation and closed the store for 4 days.  I will have to go back to work on Wednesday so I have been trying to get a lot of projects done.  I did get the kitchen chair seats redone yesterday.  Here is what the they looked like when we bought them.

I recovered them about four years ago with a red fabric.  This is what they looked like before the makeover.

Now for the new fabric. This is what I choose.

  I have five chairs total.  Four at the the table and one at the desk area.  I didn't buy enough fabric so I decided to keep one of the chairs red for now and use it at the desk.  Here is the finished project.

I think that they go much better against the red wall as the old fabric was just a bit lighter red than the walls.

On the table is a sneak peek at how I am going to dress the table.  I don't have everything I need but here is what I have so far.

Here are some of the before  projects I have been working the past few days.  Check back for the afters.

I also repainted the patio furniture that is below the deck.  I can't seem to find my before pictures.  I think they might be on my computer at work.  I sure hope so because I got it all painted and wanted all of you to see how it looked.
I got two more days to go.  I want to get the area below deck all fixed up since I also bought new cushions for the furniture. Hopefully I can get that done tomorrow.
