You Homies are rocking your awesome chair makeovers, we featured a $7 chair makeover recently, now here's another amazing chair rescue.
This pair of chairs was $40 on Craigslist. They were solid, well-built chairs and I pounced on them! I was scared to try upholstery for the first time, but it turned out to be pretty easy — just time consuming (and requiring more muscle than I would have anticipated.)
I wanted a happy, bold color with a graphic pattern, and I am so happy with the result! I glazed the chairs after painting them to make the carved details pop more. Then two coats of water-based poly went over the frames to protect them.
