LADDERBACK CHAIRS: BEFORE AND AFTER

I love d.i.y. projects! I am always one to take on the challenge of transforming something that doesn't look like it has potential into something pretty. It allows me to be creative.

So, a while back I was searching for furniture on craigslist and found these ladderback chairs. The lady was selling 6 chairs plus a table for a price I simply could not pass up!

BEFORE:

brown


red vinyl


YUCK!

and....

AFTER



I ended up only keeping two for my kitchen nook. I purchased the fabric here. The table was also a score, I believe it was around $50 at TJ Maxx a few years back and the white bench was my mom's. I purchased 2 yards of fabric and with the left over, I plan to make two pillows for the bench.

So what do you think? Hope you like it as much as I do :)
