They all helped me out. The boys pulled off the old stuff, stapled on the new stuff and screwed everything back together with me. It took most of the day to get seven chairs done (I'm not sure what happened to chair #8, but we couldn't find it anywhere).
Breanna took photos of the process. She insisted on taking closeups of the old chair covers so we could all see just how stained and grosse they were. I tried shampooing them at one time, but that just pushed the stains to the edges of the seat. Yuk!. I'm so glad the new ones are wipe clean.
And Daniel pretending to be busy with a chair frame in his hands.
Me stapling on the new covers.
Both the boys screwing the new seat pad to the chair. I think this was the toughest job. Some of those screws didn't want to go in, or wouldn't grip when they did go in.
And here they are in my dining room. Lovely!
I think the next job will be to strip and replace the eighties wallpaper.
