A lovely reader named Faith Ballard wrote this on my first post about our kitchen desk chair:
“a word to the wise: (from someone who has as many kids as you do and a passion for white and blue upholstery fabric) RUN, don't walk, to Joann's and get yourself some clear matte vinyl, and cover that sucker immediately. Unless you plan to re-cover it every two months.”
It’s one of the most used chairs in the house…what was I thinking?
Ripped it off, washed it, re-stapled it, and covered it in matte plastic like I should have done in the first place.
Do you remember Marie’s plastic sofa in Everybody Loves Raymond? Maybe that should be next…
Have you ever had to go and re-do something because you didn’t listen to great advice in the first place??
