Dining Room Chairs....

 

Remember how I found these dining room chairs at the Habitat Restore for $60?  I am working on transforming them with a little bit of homemade chalkpaint....


I took some sand paper and started the distressing.....6 chairs + 1 table adds up to a lot of painting and distressing!




I ripped off the disgusting seat covers...





When I am doing a project and I need to keep track of screws, I always put them in a baggie and tape them to my piece....




I recovered the seats with drop cloth....the same material that I used to slipcover my wing back chair......

{Notice.....I didn't finish the legs yet???}

I love the look of faux grain sacks....



I plan to add the faux grain sack stripe to the seats, I just have to first decide on a paint color for the walls......which may take another 5 years!

Although.....would a scroll-ish stencil in white look good??


Still painting....

I love the chairs and they look great white, I just bought some plaster of paris to make my own chalk paint! I hope it turns out as good as your paint looks:)

The chairs look great with that finish and new seat covers. Can't beat that price, huh? Nicely done!

The chairs looks amazing and I would never guess what they looked like in their past life! Great work!
