*Giveaway Closed* Review and Giveaway: SmartSeat Chair Protector

The winner is:


I could have used those back when we has WHITE cloth seats. What were we thinking?


Thanks to everyone who entered!

I was recently contacted by Rebecca Rabson from PB&J Discoveries regarding their SmartSeat Chair Protector. Becky is a stay-at-home mom and recently started a small company to manufacture waterproof, stain-resistant, and machine washable chair covers for dinning room and kitchen chairs. I like to try to support small businesses when I can, especially mom-owned so I thought this product was right up my alley.

Becky sent me a chair cover for review and is doing a giveaway for one of my readers!

-Protects your chair! This is the biggest pro and by far most important. We got our dinning room set on Craigslist from a family with 4 kids. Our 3 kids have beat it up. The only reason the top picture looks good is because that is our 6th chair that no one ever sits in. When I invest in a good, new dinning room set I will definitely consider some sort of chair protectors, especially for the 3 chairs the kids sit in.

-Attractive. Besides the navy cover shown, there is also a tan cover available. I would suspect either tan or navy would fit into the decor of most homes.

-Easy to install. The chair cover took me less than 5 minutes to install. I skimmed over the instructions, installed as suggested and was done. They also have how-to videos on the SmartSeat Chair Protector website.

-Affordable. $14.99-$19.99 per chair cover depending upon how many you purchase.

-Washable. A waterproof chair cover that is machine washable, how great is that?


-Fit varies from chair to chair. For my chair I used the "small chair" installation guidelines and crossed the straps for a tighter fit. I was able to get the top, front, and back, smooth and almost perfect. The only part that had some gaping was the side. On my chair I think I small piece of scotch tape would do the trick to hold it in place.

-Look. While made to look like original cushion, when looking closely you can tell there is a cover on the chair.

Overall I was very pleased and thought it is a great, innovative product.
