Twelve Dollar Makeover: Front Porch Bistro Chairs

My Dad and Stepmom gave me some starter furniture years ago when I first moved out on my own.  One of the things they gave me that I still really love are a little wood and wrought iron set of table and chairs.  In my old condo we ate at this table every night but in the current house, there just wasn't room.  So, I set them on the front porch.  It is the perfect spot for them except because of the outdoor elements, the fabric on the chairs had seen better days...

I found some fabric online that I loved and decided to recover the chairs.  It is the Robert Allen Kiki Pinata and I ordered it from

I love how it turned out!  Springy and fun!  Just need to find some scotch guard to protect it.

The other thing that became blaringly apparent to me after doing this project is how badly we need to organize our tool room.  It took me ages to find everything I needed and it is a mess down there!  A project for another weekend though.  Off to lunch!


  1. So cute! I love that fabric.

  2. I love the fabric too! It totally updated the little set. Cute!
