Kitchen Chair Redo

Awhile back I went on a hunt at Etsy to find fantastic fabric to recover my kitchen chairs.  I found the perfect fabric and had this fantastic idea that if I just spray it with scotch guard it would keep it fairly clean, and then I came back to reality.  Come on I have three boys probably the messiest kids on earth, not even scotch guard could protect a pretty fabric.  So how do you still get the look you want and have it kid proof.  After careful consideration I yes me, I went to the dark side and I purchased clear vinyl.  Or as I have told the kids, they have reduced me to use "Grandma Plastic" LOL. 

 Here is the before of the chair, it came with this ugly grey fabric on it.

Yeap see they are the messiest kids.  Paint, food, you name it they will spill it. 

Love this fabric, even with the plastic on top

I am still deciding if I want to paint the frame of the chair white, maybe I will have to live with it for awhile.

I love the fabric...it's great that you could go either way with white or no white...they will look great either way. Our chairs look just like your before picture...silly kids :)

Love the fabric! When we had our tile and carpets cleaned, we had them clean our dining room chairs too. Four are still clean..the other two on my son's "side"....NASTY! I think I'll wait til he's in school before I think about redoing them!

Fantastic fabric! I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who has considered plastic vinyl to cover kitchen chairs. I have 6 kids 4 are boys!

Great fabric! I think the chair looks great brown, but also could be awesome white. Either way, great makeover!

Thanks for visiting, great minds think alike!
Love your chairs, they would look great white and distressed but they also look great as they are!
