As per the request of one of my favorite blog followers: here is a way to protect your fabric upholstered chairs from getting dirty and it is wonderful because you can even wipe it off!
You see a fun vintage solid wood chair I found. I love this chair. It even has lovely woodcarving! Lucky me for finding it! I painted it red and covered the seat with new fabric.
But this fabric I chose is light in color. Do you really think it will survive my children (and me….) without getting smudged?
I think not !!! So I need to do something to protect the fabric.
Here is my plan of attack!
I bought some vinyl from the fabric store. I bought a whole yard, which is WAY too much, but I might need it again, so now I have it on hand.
- vinyl, cut to size (larger than the seat)
- staple gun
That’s it! Just pull it tight as you cover the front and staple the back.
You can’t even tell it has that sterile-looking plastic on the chair. OK, so when the light hits it just right you CAN tell, but that is totally worth it because I know the light-colored upholstery cotton fabric would last two weeks around here (maybe) until it would be brownish.
