reupholstered and it feels so good

After nursing a love-hate relationship with the cushions on these secondhand chairs for years, I finally came down firmly on the side of "must go" and had them reupholstered.

I didn't attempt to do it myself because I fell in love with a fabric remnant that was about a yard too short, and the upholstery shop (T's in Lawrenceville, if you're local and interested) had more confidence in their ability to eke four cushions out of it than I had in myself.

I'm thrilled with the result, and thankful that it is done just in time for the Cavalcade of Houseguests, 2007 edition.

In other news, this morning I made chocolate-cherry pancakes for breakfast by dropping chocolate chips and halved frozen cherries into the batter blobs as soon as I plopped them in the skillet. Highly satisfactory.

The chairs look wonderful. I keep meaning to get around to reupholstering the cushions on a similar looking sofa and chair, but am a bit nervous to hear how much it will cost. Your chair looks so great, though, that I might just plunge in.
And the pancakes sound yummy. Yesterday, I added a cup of crunchy granola and some brown sugar to my pancake batter. Mmmm....
Have a great week.

Thanks, everyone! And if you've got that song in our head... you're welcome!

Anonymous, sorry I could not reply to you personally so I hope you check back here: Iris' kitchen set was a present from her grandmother a couple years ago. I think she got it at a store called Tuesday Morning, which is a chain that carries overstocks, seconds, etc.
