Over the summer, I paid $6 each for a set of chairs at an estate sale. The colors and pattern wasn't working with the rest of my home and I have plans to sew slip covers. But a spur of the moment decision was made to paint them when I was decorating for Christmas. #bestof2012 #recycle
  • Better colors for our home and style.
  • Matching pillows (His & Hers)
  • I actually loved the, olive, fuchsia and lived with them for a while, but the colors just weren't working {especially when decorating for Christmas} so I painted them.

    Wow, these chairs look fantastic. I just wonder how the fabric feels when you sit in the chair? You tutorial is really helpful.

    Since I didn't use fabric medium, V Valencia, they have more of a vinyl feel...which I'm actually liking (no cat hair). In the link to my tutorial above, I share a link to another site that used fabric medium with good results too. Hope that helps!

    These look wonderful! I love the final product, you did a wonderful job! I painted a couch about 2 years ago and we still use it daily and it still looks wonderful. I'm working on some chairs right now that I found at Goodwill! I love painting furniture

    I really like the look of the finished chairs! And the matching pillows-very cool. For $6 and a little sweat equity, you've essentially got brand new chairs. Well done!
