Recovering my bar stools

I do not spend a lot of money on furniture.  Since my boys were little, there were always spills, toys banging into furniture, and definitely some unrecognizable gunk (mom's know what I mean) that I have chisel to remove :) furniture.  I needed a few bar stools for the kitchen and found three on clearance at Target.  The material is NOT kid friendly but I knew at some point I would recover them and all would be good.  Wellllll....3 years later they are still not recovered.  I cannot believe I would just keep scrubbing them every so often only to have them stained at the next meal.  Let me show you how I recovered these nasty things!

Embarrassing :(
I was at the fabric store looking for material to make curtain panels when I remembered these stools.  I promptly went to the leather looking fabric and DONE!  Bar stool project in full effect!

I flipped the stool over and unscrewed 4 screws that held the cushion to the frame.

Not complicated at all :)

I then laid out the fabric and left about 5-6 inches around the entire circle.

I stapled one side of the fabric and pulled the exact opposite side taut and stapled.

I continued stapling all around the circle.

I flipped the stool over and screwed the cushion back to the frame.

I can't believe I didn't recover them as soon as I brought them home!
