Pop of Orange Chair Covers


When my husband moved in, one of the items he brought with him was a dining set. I think it's from about the 1950's and it had been left by his home's original owner. This is what the chair cover fabric looked like.

Little bouquets and scallops on an ivory background. Not really my style. I went to Joann Fabrics with visions of brown and tan striped fabric but I found this orange fabric that I fell in love with. It was a remnant and it was just big enough for all six chairs.

I think the new fabric really brightens them up and makes them feel less formal.

Here's the before and after.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love the new fabric. That looks much better and less formal like you said. I would love for you to join my weekly wow us Wednesdays party if you haven't before. And yes, my house is full of color. Lots of reds, greens, yellows, and browns and blues.

  2. I love the pop of orange, looks awesome! Thank you so much for commenting on my wreath and telling me about the link party.
