We bought our used dining room chairs right after we got married and they were already dirty, but we figured it was fine and it was just us young love birds . Many years and a few children later, the chairs were in desperate need for a re-covering. So with our little army we set out to fix up our dinning room chairs.
NOTE: Make sure to measure your chairs before heading out to buy/repurpose fabric. You want to make sure you have enough. You need to add about 4 - 6 inches to the measurement so you have enough fabric to staple on the bottom. Also add for the thickness of your foam!
