Finally finished the chairs!
Eeee! Yay. The print is a Waverly floral from JoAnn clearance ($4.50 a yard!), although it's still full price ($29.99 a yard) at the other JoAnn and from special order there. I have a lot of extra so I will have to do something coordinating but not too matchy-matchy. The backs of the chairs are a coordinating acetate, sort of changeable, about $3 at JoAnn clearance. The braid is the cheapey, ubiquitous home dec braid, but in a cool matching color, from Mill End. This project required a lot of staples and hot glue.
Look at the "before" on them:
Aren't they hideous, in the 90's dark green/maroon plaid and floral? I think so. I am not 100% happy with my recovering and painting job, but it is a huge improvement!
After I tackle painting the table and leaves, I can finish up decorating the dining room (finally)!
