Thing one and Thing two

Well, here is the story of a couple of NOT so pretty chairs.
I got these at my local goodwill for only $4.99.
They were very sturdy and surprisingly enough.."made in Poland"...:)
I had heard of Polish glass, but had never heard much of Polish furniture.


















Anyway, even though they were very well made, I was not a fan of the red stain and the pink vinyl covering on the seats...YUCK!














Soooooooooo, I got to priming them....


















and while I waited for the primer to dry, I got to covering the seats with my material.




















notice again..the yucky...(yes that is a scientific term) pink vinyl...:)
















also notice the ton of staples and why I covered over this and didn't pull them all out!!!!















and here she is all covered....MUCH BETTER!!!





















Now I could get to painting in an heirloom white.




















And then to distressing......

















and then re-attaching the seats to the chair....






















and then I hand painted on No. 1 and No.2 on the back of the chairs. I have seen these in so many posts, I don't even know who to give credit too...:)




















now look how perfect they look with my "french label table"..




















you can see the link to the table @ http://arttisbeauty.blogspot.com/2011/07/french-dining-table.html


I hope you have a beautiful day!
