Extra {Pretty} Easter Seating

2 Hours
In need of extra seating for Easter, or any special occasion? Transform those old folding chairs into pretty new seats! I found 2 folding chairs at Goodwill for less than $10 and gave them a whole new look. While I was at it, I took an old paint splattered metal chair and gave it a fresh coat of paint too.

    I have some older Samsonite chairs, how did you get cushions off without damaging?
