Happy November 1st! Quite possibly our favorite month! It’s beautiful outside, you get to wear layers, and lots of things in general are just so much cozier!
Since it’s such a beautiful time of the year to be outside, me and my dear roomie have made it our mission to spruce up our back deck and make it a welcoming Fall-type place!
Step #1 was to Pressure Wash the nasty deck! (note: say “Pressure Washer” a bunch of times in a row, it’s confusingly fun)
It helps to have a handy man, (my future father-in-law) nearby to help out!
Step #2! Now that you have a nice clean area, you need things to fill it with! We chose THESE:
Beautiful huh?! Not so much, but a great place to start!
Step #3 CHUNK the old moldy stuff! ICK! (unscrew from the bottom side of chair)
Step #4 Find a nice hunky Fiancé to help you cut out new bases for the chairs! ow ow!!
Step #5 Cut out a square of fabric that will cover your seat surface lying face down
Step #6 Fluff out the stuffing and lay on fabric (use liberally because it WILL squish down!)
Step #7 Lay new seat base on top of stuffing and fabric and tuck stuffing in around it, basically making a sandwich!
Step #8 NOW, using your best gift-wrapping skills, proceed to pull fabric up and fold around the base and staple down to the board! You can do it! (note: we were simultaneously pressing the board down with our knees so that the stuffing and fabric would be nice and taut!
Step #9 Keep on stapling! At least every 2 inches with extra staples in the corners!
Step #10 Good job! You’ve got your seat! We just have to attach it!
Step #11 Take freshly spray-painted chair with coordinating seat cushion and flip over together, and screw back together!!
TA DA!!!! Excellent Job!!!! So fresh! So nice! And a great spot to sit and enjoy FALL!!! One might say, you’ll be “Fall’in in love” with these chairs! ha!
