Cream Seat Cover Dining Chair Oval Back – You may have noticed that things have slowed down a bit for me on social media. As I talked about last week, I learned the importance of procrastination. And because of the morning sickness, for some reason I feel like the best place for me is anywhere but home. Which makes home projects and DIY a little less doable. But one thing I’ve been thinking about this week is sewing blankets for the dining room chairs.
It’s been a while since I reupholstered and painted my dining room chairs. If you don’t remember, I found some old rattan chairs that I liked enough to use in my dining room. While I’m still looking for some that fit my style even more, these work for now. The only problem is that the seats are cream white.

And white of any shade will not last long in our house. So I decided that I absolutely had to make dining room chair covers if these chairs were going to last more than a few weeks. In the meantime, we used towels on the chairs. But now my pregnancy brain has had enough and I want real chair covers. (Doesn’t it seem like we want things a certain way during pregnancy?)

Anyway, I’ve been scouring the internet and Pinterest for some ideas. Here are the best tips I found on Pinterest. Let me know which style you like best in the comments below.
Miss Mustard. This is a kind of French country look with frills, frills and check print. I like the plaid color on these chairs because I feel like it would cover stains or spills better. I also really love ruffles and these wraps were some of the first projects I saw from Miss Mustard Seed. I am so grateful now that she is my mentor, so of course I have to review some of her upholstery.
Pieces of time. These are quite similar to the above, but the stiff fabric creates more pleats than ruffles. I love this one as much as the first ones. Of course, I don’t think I would do them in a cream color like hers because then I would have a similar problem keeping them clean.
August Blue Slipcover Studio. I was also thinking about those who are lightly dressed and don’t have such a rough bottom. I think they have a simpler look, just with a little pleated bottom.

Decorated house. This cover has a flatter look. Although the back is folded. I was thinking of doing something like this too, but without the folds on the back.
Of course, you may have noticed that most of these covers are white, which would be a problem. So, along with the style of the cover, I will need to decide on the fabric to use. Decisions, decisions, decisions!
The good news is that I have some great options here and really if they turn out even half as good as this I think I’d rather be happy. Stay tuned to see who I’m going with. But comment below which style you prefer and why. I would love to hear from you!

Dining chairs can make a bold statement to bring personal style to your home’s dining room. If you want to impress your guests with decoration and not just food, check out the following fabrics for your dining chairs. Each choice can add comfort, style, functionality and maybe even a little flair to your dining room chairs.
Although natural cotton is a strong fiber by itself, adding synthetic fibers such as nylon or polyester to cotton increases the durability of this fabric. Use cotton blend covers to achieve durability, stain resistance, wrinkle resistance and longevity for the seat of your dining chairs. Easily maintain and keep cotton-blend wallpaper looking brand new by treating it with a stain-resistant material like Scotchguard.
Micro suede or faux suede is the preferred synthetic fabric because it looks and feels like real leather, but without the expense. Faux suede is lightweight, easy to clean and wears well for years. Note that lighter colored man-made fabrics may show residue, dirt and marks on the surface. Unlike real leather, this plastic alternative is cruelty-free and resists stains and tears better than genuine suede.

Enjoy luxurious seats with genuine leather fabric, with three textures available. Top grain leather is the most expensive, most desirable and highest quality option. Folner skin usually shows natural imperfections such as skin wrinkles and hair follicles. Corrected grainy skin is inflated to look even and smooth. Use genuine leather for chair upholstery as it is durable, flexible and lasts for years.
There are many advantages to using tweed upholstery fabric. Tweed is made from durable wool fibers that have a natural beauty and texture. Cleaning tweed requires regular vacuuming, unless you need to clean with a mild detergent to remove stains. Choose tweed for a sophisticated, classic dining room or farmhouse-style home.
Upholstering a chair with velvet is popular because it is inexpensive, comes in a variety of colors and styles, and has a long lifespan. Choose a plush fabric for its unique texture, stain resistance or weave. Spot clean and gently brush the material to keep it clean.
If you want a fabric that resists fading and wear from the sun, but cleans effortlessly with a damp cloth, choose vinyl. You can find vinyl in elaborate embossed designs, styles that mimic leather, and textured options in solid colors. Vinyl is affordable, lasts, and still looks polished.

The average dining room chair measures 16 x 18 inches, so you can make two upholstered cushions from a 54 inch wide piece of fabric. Use a flexible measuring tape to measure the seat cushion from edge to edge and record the length and width. Be sure to add three to ten inches to each measurement so that you have enough fabric to fold and sew to the bottom of the chair during the dusting process. Use chalk or a washable marker to mark the seat measurements on the back of the fabric.
If you’re not a sewing expert, it’s easiest to use an existing pattern for your chair cushion. You want to carefully remove the area you want to upholster, including any staples or seams, and unfold the material completely. When you tear the fabric from the pillow, note how many times the fabric is folded. Add an extra inch or more of fabric on all sides if there are ragged or frayed edges.
Ensuring that dining chairs always match the table they are paired with is not a hard and fast design rule. Explore a more eclectic or bohemian dining room look by mixing colors, textures and upholstery of your chairs. Follow your design flair and keep the chairs and table in a similar color family, texture or design theme for visual interest.
Take control of the look of your home and enjoy customizing your dining chairs with the upholstery fabric of your choice. Believe it or not, most dining room chairs are easy to reupholster with a few tools and a few yards of quality fabric.

Gathering the following items before you begin can make the process less time-consuming and make the transition easier:
Before you begin, inspect the seat to determine what tools you will need to remove the seat cushion. If you want, you can place the new fabric over the existing pillow without removing the old fabric or staples. Now you are ready to reupholster the chair.
It always helps to have a sewing kit handy when working with fabric. The kit below includes a seam ripper to remove old pillowcases, a tape measure, and pins to hold your newly laid fabric in place for sewing.
