In our house we have this linoleum flooring that looks like stone.
It's really pretty and I like the look of it in our kitchen.
Unfortunately though, we have an old dining set that all the chairs are losing their little rubber bottoms off the feet.
Our floor was getting scratched up or getting little marks in it so I decided I could come up with something that would help keep the chairs from messing up the floors. LOL And so Chair Sox were born!
I'm hoping that some of you out there can use this clever little invention of mine to help protect your hard wood, tile or linoleum floors! Enjoy and thanks for stopping by The Perfect Knot Crochet and More!
