Just so you don't think I've forgotten.
See? I actually pulled out the package of Ikea curtain fabric two weekends ago and washed it. Then? It sat on my chair by my bed for another week. Last weekend I finally found the tools I'd been using to pull off the old seat covers (we had guests, things got moved, I couldn't find things for quite a while). I brought them up from the basement and they sat on the dining room table for the week. Yesterday, I moved the washed curtain fabric to the dining room. This is progress, right?!
You can see the chair in the background, naked, without any fabric. It's been waiting all this time to be re-covered.
I'm hoping my inertia on this project will slowly give way ... and that finally that first chair will no longer be naked. At this rate, the seven chairs will all be re-covered by ... ah, I can't even think how long that will be. I've got to get this thing done!
