On my TO DO list is to recover two patio chairs. I was looking for waterproof fabric, however the only thing that is waterproof is plastic and I didn’t want that. So I settled with water-resistant. I only need enough fabric to cover two seat cushions, so I took apart the chairs. The seat was held together with four screws it was easy. The only tools you need is a screw driver, scissors, a stapler, quarter-inch staples and of course the fabric. I took one of the seats with me, I just wanted to buy just enough fabric.
So off I went on a short road trip to the local fabric store. As soon as I arrived I asked for the outdoor fabric. Since they noticed I was carrying the upholstered seat they asked how much I needed and I only needed enough for two. The sales clerk directed me to remnant bin and I started my search. I wanted something very col0urful and happy looking and I ended up with a simple beige and white pattern. Total cost of $11.87 and my time. A great investment.
