However, as brilliant as the idea was, there was a small problem. Since the vinyl fabric has no "give" over time it got stressed and "popped". Yes, popped. You see, one day my hubby plopped down on the chair and there was the sound of a balloon popping. We couldn't figure out what it was.... then we looked at the seat and it had a long "crack" in it. Split. Regular fabric does not do this because it has "give". Plastic does not.
So now I have benches at my table (black and white harlequin - in case you missed them check them out HERE) and have these chairs to get rid of. I figure there was no way I could sell them "as is" so I quick recovered them with new fabric this afternoon. I couldn't find a piece big enough for all of them, so I did them coordinating and I really like the way they turned out! Now hopefully someone will take them off my hands as I don't have room to store them any longer!
