ac's mom is in town tonight and i'm making dinner for the three of us. as i was getting my recipe list together it suddenly dawned on me- our dining chairs are not only awful but they're filthy. we bought some seriously crappy ikea chairs when we moved in "until we found nicer ones". that's sort of the story of our entire apartment- cut to two years later and these crappy black chairs have been sitting in the back room collecting dust, gunk and cat hair. what to do in a pinch? grab some fabric from my repro depot stash and get to staple-gunnin'. i still hate the chairs but i'm crazy about this pink fabric- sometimes a bright pattern can really save the day.
