Sometimes on weekends, I like to pretend that I'm productive. Last weekend I thought I'd finally get to a project that I've been meaning to do ever since I moved in 3 years ago.

I think I may have been bitten by the redecorating bug recently, as I have been having some major itches to update things around the apartment. I wish I had thought of taking more before pictures, as it may have made a fun series of posts! Either way, I started with some rearranging of furniture. With the updated feng shui, I felt like there were some misc updates around the house that were necessary to tie everything together and make our place feel slightly less cluttered than usual.

One of my easiest first updates was to finally put new fabric on these chairs! Because of their simple design, covering up the old fabric looked like it would be easy enough with a standard staple gun and a few yards of new fabric. And no offense to whoever chose that green plaid, but it just was not working and something had to be done. So I hopped on over to Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store to pick something out. I thought I'd play it a little safe with this interesting design and neutral colorway.

Once I got home, I just went to town on cutting and stapling and voila! My re-invented chairs. It may not seem like that much of an update, but it really helped tie the apartment together (at least compared to that green plaid). And for all of you expert DIY-ers out there.. I'm sure this project is no new news to you.

Makai refused to model my new chair, so his painted dragon was obviously my only choice.

Honestly, I really love the idea of a main table with completely different chairs instead of the traditional "dining set." I think it's kind of cute to mix and match and have it be a cohesive idea. But we got ourselves some quality chairs from Mark's dad when we moved in and "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." 

...Except I guess I changed the fabric and technically "fixed it." You get what I meant.
