On Sunday, my sweet husband stayed inside with our sick boys folding laundry so I could spend the afternoon outside painting the chairs. I removed two layers of upholstery and febreezed the padding. Today, I finished the third coat of black paint, reupholstered the seats in a lovely floral found on clearance for 75% off and attached new foot pads. All this took place while my boys spent an unexpected hour at a dear friend's house and during nap time. Good thing they were sick today, too...otherwise I would have actually needed to homeschool!
I love the result! Even Mike thinks they are awesome! (Good thing...I'm trying to sneak in more girly things in our living spaces...loving floral stuff right now!)
My next task is to find the perfect sized table for the chairs and the space...the beauty of the chairs is lost under the white folding table!
