Remember that date I had with the Mister? And the trip to the upholstery warehouse? Well, I'm ready to debut the new dining room chairs we found on the street, and which were 100% inspired by these beauties I saw on Design Sponge and then again on our very own Sunset Home blog.
But first, a breakdown:
Cost: chairs-free, paint and painting supplies-about $30, fabric-$22 TOTAL: $52
Time: a week, but if you were more industrious and say, maybe laid off and single, you could get it done in a weekend (including dry time).
Unanticipated side effects: numb right index finger from prolonged depression of spray paint button. Sudden and acute need to buy new kitchen table and paint the walls. It's never ending, really.
Ok, so maybe they don't look so bad here but let me
just say that the maple is fake and the fabric was filthy.
And—wait for it, wait for it.
Yes, we did all four chairs. I just got sick of posing them.
What we did: sanded, primed with a spray primer (1 coat), painted with Rust-Oleum American Classics in Blossom White (3 coats), covered seat with a Schumacher fabric remnant. And, voila!
