Chairs

I'm with Ana on the chairs. That's really amazing. The last time I made a chair it took a very full and tiring day to build the frame, and another evening to build the seat. Do you have tips for speeding the process up?

Thank you!

Thank you for all these compliments. I don't speak English very well because I'm french but I will try to make me understand. I built a chair with the modifications to see the result, then, I made all the cuttings with my miter saw for the 5 other chairs, then I made every chair within half an hour. I cut all that it was necessary foam and fabric in one step and I sewed everything for covers. To make covers, I made a paper pattern, then I sewed them in 10 minutes.
I am very happy I found this site with all that wonderful projects. It's my favorite site . Thank you Ana, you changed my life!

great job

Does your slip cover come off? I would like to make a couple of these to use as accent chairs in my living room. Yours look amazing.
I have one little boy, two cats, a large dog and a ferret. I need something that is WASHABLE =)

Slip Cover

The covers of the chairs come out. I used ana's plan to make chairs and covers. I modified the cover's plan to fit the chairs because I made them taller. It is very practical because I have a four-year-old girl even if I have no cat and no dog =)

Your dinning room looks very

Your dinning room looks very fancy, you've chosen the perfect colors, I like the green printed chair covers, they really display your artwork, not to mention the black table, which is the central piece. This kind of projects are difficult sometimes, but it doesn't matter when you get such a result.

Beautiful!

I love your chairs and especially like the extra height. How tall did you make the backs of the chairs?

Height of the chairs

The back of chairs is about 60 cms from the seat.
