My Top Ten Picks Of MM #41

Reality check time. Hi, Everyone! Some of you may remember last Summer as I toiled and sweated outside in the heat, painting my dinning table and chairs white. Then I reupholstered the chair cushions with some nice fresh, clean burlap. I hardly ever get to see the burlap though.

 Here is a picture of the main problem. Cute problems, but problems never the less. As a household with four cats, cats who love sitting on dinning room chairs.........
 Here's one of my "keepin' it real pictures". I had to protect my clean hair-free burlap.  But, did I do all this toiling to look at towel draped chairs every day? No, I don't think so.
 I finally sewed some drop cloth chair covers! They were super easy. I just hand stitched some thread and pulled to make the ruffle and then sewed it to the seat cover. I can take these off easily and throw them into the washer. I really like the way they look and now I have two choices.
