Like New!

I have no clue what I was thinking when we moved to Faro a few years ago. I bought a beautiful wood table complete with a huge leaf, six chairs covered with, can you believe this.... white fabric! Seriously. White fabric. Why the heck did I ever pick anything with white!!

Needless to say, they are no longer white. They are a nasty shade of off-white with highlights of purple (blueberries), blue (blue pen), brown (dirt, poo, chocolate cake), red (strawberries, red pen), orange (mac'n cheese) and a lot of unknown colours from who knows what!

On our trip south this summer I bought some vinyl fabric to re-cover the chairs and just got around to it last weekend. They look fabulous now! And the best part- I can now just wipe off any messes! Absolutely necessary for a house with two boys.

Looking like new again!
