More Canvas Totes





Joann's had 40 percent off the canvas totes again this week so back I went a purchased the next size larger than the previous size... I have shown the pillow seat covers that needed a redo.... I simply snipped the handles in half ... free handed letters in french.... house of luxury..... and inserted the old chair pillows.... for the grand total of 12.00 for 4 chairs.... I am seriously thinking of doing this outside on my decks for a bistro look this summer.... I am going to look at canvas drop painters cloths and see if I may make them work for a table cloth..... I am also thinking of buying 4 more large canvas totes and seeing if they will work for chair toppers and if not I can use them on the decks... to be continued......
