Refurbished vintage chairs project.

So, we recently were fortunate enough to get a FREE table from my landlord's mother as she was moving to assisted living and didn't want it.  Nothing fancy schmancy, but a great solid wood table--bigger than the one we had for the past 6 years.  Only problem is it had no chairs to go with it!

Insert project refurbish!

I searched and searched and searched on Craigslist for some cool, but cheap chairs.  I decided I'd have to go as cheap as I could and then design them myself.  I found some refurbish-able chairs for a great price--6 chairs for $60.

Since they needed to be toddler proof and food stain proof, I picked up some printed vinyl instead of just fabric.  This will make clean up much easier!

Added some spray paint of my favorite color and project complete!

VOILA!
 




For the breakdown of price:

6 chairs- $60
10 cans of spray paint (yes TEN)- $40
Vinyl fabric- $23
TOTAL: $123 for 6 chairs or  20.50 per chair

Not too shabby!
