DIY dining chairs upgrade

Gray and I inherited a couple lovely dining chairs from his grandmother ("Grandmother" or Dixie)that were originally Dixie's mother's.  Clear as mud?  Ok, well in short, they're old, and a makeover was in need.  Here's the before:


After a couple trips to fabric stores on the hunt for something that would pull in the red/pink/rose from my lamps and add a pop a color to the dining room...


 ...I decided to use some fabric I had left over from my living room pillows...


So, after removing the old fabric and finding this...


...we purchased some new plywood, foam, and cotton batting and cut it to size.


And then, after a little staple action.....TA-DA!  Here's the finished product...



Much better!
