Even though you may not be ready, it is that time of the year, when you spruce up our home, for the family friends and aquaintences that willl be arriving for, parties, dinners and festivities.

You may not think people notice the little things in your home, but they do. Are your dining room chairs tired and uncomfortable or in need of a make over? It is a simple project that can be done at minimal expense.

Do you have 6, 8, 10 or 12 chairs, and there are only 2 that you want people to use? Then it is time to freshen them up.

The average 2 chair takes only 3/4 quarters of a yard (*depending on pattern and no finish cord) so, your 6 chairs will only take 2.25 yards of fabric. WOW RIGHT? Then the fabric cost this is usually under $100.00, unless you want to slurge on a designer fabric- the sky is the limit, we can assist you in making the selection.

Labor for the average chair is $25-$55 per chair (based on labor intensity)

New cushion inserts vary depending on size, but the average new cushion is approximately $11.00 per chair. Replacing the foam, batting or old insides, is what your guest will notice most, how comfortable they feel at your table or sitting in your occasional chair. In a world when we all rush fromplace to place, time is valuable and our connections to the poeple who join us are priceless. Why not make them want to stay awhile?

Replacing the insides of the chair seat, lenghtens the new fabric life, starting fresh is always recommended, but not always necessary, so bring us in your seat and we can help you to determine, exactly, what will work the best.

The cost to comfort ratio is worth the investment. A complete 6 chair redo will average around $300 before tax and it brings new life to your home.

See some of our photos of seats redone over the last month.

Stop in and let us help you bring beauty and comfort to your Holidays.
