The picture doesn't show all the little scratches. The seat was basically a piece of wood covered with material. So, out comes the paint and drop cloth. I have to say my friend had given me 5" cushion foams a while ago which came in handy for this. (Thanks Jessica) So after cutting the cushion into equals thicknesses, I had my foam for the seats for free. After all my work, here is how one of the host's chair turned out.
I definitely wanted some sort of punch for the host and hostess's chairs. So, after using freezer paper as my stencil. This is a close up of the seat.
A little distressing to add a little charm.
Now, there is a unique, charming set of dining chairs just waiting to grace someones lovely home. Don't mind the pink chairs in the background. I know I posted out that find long ago. I tend to put off projects for the house and put things for the booth first. Maybe that will change once the kids are in school.
Would love to know if you like them. Let me know. I'm sharing over at:
