I found these four white dining chairs at a yard sale for ten bucks a piece. They needed a new coat of paint, which was fine, I've painted furniture before. But the challenge for these chairs was reupholstering them. They had a hideous red vinyl cover over some very old foam. I took them home, gave them a new coat of white paint and began upholstering. I found the green paisley fabric at Joann fabrics. These chairs are small, chic, and perfect for my new apartment. I'm really happy with the way they turned out!
