I found two of these beautiful chairs from the fifties at a garage sale (both for 15 bucks!) and decided to give them a makeover and a new home. So here is the first one, painted in white and covered with a Riley Blake fabric. I am totally in love with it - and it beeing my first "real" reupholstery job  - kind of proud.





Thanks for looking and happy easter, anyone!  Cheesy

EDIT: So, this is the whole set. I painted the small table and gave it a nice smooth oilcloth-cover to cover up the *OMGTHISISSOBAD*-surface. Cheesy
