Gorgeous Outdoor Fabric by Langner Dzign

Tired of kid clutter choking every room in the house and cramping your style?  MommaJam talks to Ames Ingham, a home decorator and fellow mom, to give you inspiring, new ways to infuse life and energy into your home.

To help combat kids with messy fingers, Ames recommends using outdoor fabric for indoor spaces.  Some of today’s great new patterns and textures help hide smudges, and the durable fabrics are easy to clean.   Check out the gorgeous outdoor fabrics at Gretchen Langer Dzign.    CLICK ARROW TO PLAY MOMMAJAM MINUTE.  A QUICK DOSE OF FUN!

Another option for covering kitchen chairs is to use plastic table clothes.  I noticed my friend, Tina, did this with her kitchen chairs, and the idea is cheap, easy to do and genius!  Buy about three or four of the same table cloth to make sure you have enough material and cover your chairs the same way you would any other chair with fancy fabric.  Messes wipe off in a jiffy.  Yeah!

Peace! Vinyl Harts Fabric for Kids' Chairs

Another tip:  Recover kitchen or playroom chairs with oilcloth or vinyl fabric from Harts Fabric, the most creative fabric store around.  The store has amazing fabrics and patterns in all sorts of colors to match any room in the house.  Inspiration!

This is the MommaJam Minute.
