I really wish I would have taken a close up picture of this fabric so that you could get the full affect! I can't even picture this cute when it was brand new and minus all the dirt...these little pink elephants are borderline scary looking! Anyhoo...as I already told you, I used a little Gorilla glue to tighten things up and then gave it a fresh coat of white paint. When I originally dismantled the fabric pieces, I was careful so that I could use them as a pattern for the new fabric. The back cushion was easy peasy...the rest, not so much. I originally tried to make the seat exactly as they had, but when I could see that it wasn't going to happen, I went to Plan B. I think by the time I finally finished, I was on at least Plan F! Yes, it was a nightmare getting there, but I have to say, I am pretty pleased with the end result:
The sewing God's must have been with me because even the "pattern" on the fabric lined up, from the top cushion to the bottom cushion. It appears that I used Damask so that it would match my craft room, but nope, not the case! We did not want something too color specific since Melissa wants to take pictures using this chair.
I really can't even tell you what my final cost was on this little rocker because I made so many trips to the store...I can tell you that if I would have done it right the first time it should have cost me:
