Got It Made! Mary Jane McIntyre’s pillows and chairs

Mary Jane McIntyre proves that a little goes a long way with fabrics, buttons and other items purchased at our fundraising sales. “I recovered my dining room chairs using $10 of upholstery fabric from the workroom,” says McIntyre. “The most challenging part of the project was removing the old fabric. Lots of staples! I replaced the foam padding on the chairs but reused the batting that was under the foam. I watched a Youtube video for further instruction.”
