I see these types of chairs all the time at my local thrift store and on Wednesday they are half off bringing it down to a whopping 5 bucks a chair!
The thing that I find interesting is that they NEVER have any cushioning on them……I mean did they just not NEED a soft seat back then? Did it make them sit up straighter??? Maybe that’s it??
I like to relax and slouch in a chair I guess so I need LOTS of cushioning……:-)
Since I already posted how to add foam to a chair like this I’ll just link to the post. I also showed you how to upholster fabric on a seat in this post so check those out if you need help!
I always just lightly sand off or wipe down the blemishes and use my trusty stain pen on scratches. It totally does the trick for what I need.
And now for the fun AFTER (this really only took about 30 minutes!)
Fabric $1.00 (was a pillow sham at the thrift store)
Grand Total $6 bucks!!!
I bet you guy know where I am going to put this – right???
It will be for my daughters cute French Linen Blue Antique Desk. Click the link for a complete step by step of that project using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
So excited to show you her room all put together!!! Linking up to Southern Hospitality
