As of last week, Josh and I still had not yet purchased our dining room chairs. All the chairs I wanted were around $45-$65 per chair (even at ikea) and I just felt like that was quite pricey....I could have settled for plain chairs without a cushion for $25 a peice but it still seemed like a waste because it wasn't even what I really wanted....SO...I decided I could just restore some old chairs for a way better price and make them how I wanted them :)
I found these chairs at Re Store for $11 a piece. I bought 5 of them (since the other end of my table will eventually have a highchair :))
This ended up being a bigger project than I had planned for....these chairs had been reupholstered about 4 times already so every different layer had to be removed and the foam had to be replaced...I could not have done these cushions as well or as fast without the help of my mom, and josh for the help sanding and spray painting (obviously, since I cant being preggo and all)
I Love them!!
Also, I have yet another project that I just purchased....patio furniture! Ill be posting that whenever I am finished...I still have yet to get started though.
