I used to have a glass dining room table with chairs that matched and before Ella was born, I sold them because I can’t stand glass. Fast forward 18 months or so. I now have a simple dark dining room table from ikea and I had the brilliant idea to collect misc chairs from yard sales/estate sales/goodwill and re-paint and re-cover them all for my dining room. SUPER. This was an excellent SUMMER project, but it was the dead of winter and I ended up having 5 perfectly unlovely chairs for many months before I could go outside to spray paint them.
Whatever. The point is, SPRING is here and the chairs are DONE DONE DONE. The family is sooooo delighted to have happy little seats for our bums during meal time.
I used a colonial white paint. The fabric was PERFECT and FREE because it came from my mother-in-law. Apparently this used to be old flour sacks that HER mother kept because she like the fabric. It was never used until now– and I LOVE IT!
