White Wednesday - Chair Covers

I wanted to show you my wonderful, new chair covers. They were made by 2 special ladies at Etsy. I am so pleased with the fine workmanship, attention to detail and excellent value.
If you would like them to sew something for you their link is www.etsy.com/shop/PaulaAndErika.
They were made to fit my dining chairs - spindles and all. They have lovely deep ruffles. And they make me smile.
I wanted to paint the old dining furniture white, but DH did not like the idea. (There is more than one way to skin a cat!) I hope you all know what I mean by that :)


This is the before pic. Nasty looking, aren't they. DH seems to have the idea they are some kind of valuable antiques that should not be painted over the wood. I have heard that alot of men are the same way. **smiles**

Hi Pamela,
I love your chair covers and I know exactly what you mean about our men. Mine is the same way. He is a cabinet builder and can't figure out why a person would want to paint stained wood white! lol But he indulges me and doesn't bat an eye...usually! Happy WW!!

If my Mr. AGPMan wouldn't let me paint my chairs (or any wood for that matter) I think I might have to beat him up.

ahahhahahah

Men and wood! Don't understand it but I've been there!

How adorable!

I thought the same about painting then I realized hay I could just strip them or let someone else.

Pamela you are so funny! Your slipcovers are lovely, completely transform the look of the chairs. I also have a "natural" wood guy, but I get away with the smaller stuff. My new chairs I just bought, however, will become white!
Would love to know more about your new thrift store..when...where...
great idea to get the locals together! My kids are all home for the summer months now but I'm sure we can work something out!!
Blessings,
Tracey
