I have four unique vintage dining room chairs that need some TLC.
My mother had already replaced some of the cane chair backs.
Unfortunately these chairs are not safely sitable not to mention that the stuffing sifts itself onto the floor.
I went to JoAnn Fabrics to get some supplies to repair the seats:
- 1″ high density foam
- Polyester batting
- 3.5 inch jute webbing
I bought the first two items but unfortunately JoAnn’s was selling jute webbing for $9.99 per yard. Seriously, that’s too expensive especially since I think I’ll need a couple of yards per chair.
When I got home I checked out jute webbing on Etsy and found it for about $1 per yard. (N.B.: Check more than one vendor to compare not only prices but also shipping costs.)
Hoping to start rehabbing these chairs soon.
I’m going to use the same canvas fabric from which the living room and dining room shades are made.
Have you found a good bargain lately?
