I've had these chairs sitting in our garage FOREVER.
They were $2 each at my local thrift store....yes, you read that right...$2 !
A few coats of white semi-gloss, and some new seat fabric, and they're as good as new!
I decided that I wanted to add some navy blue to our home....something a little bit dramatic in the middle of all the pale, calming colours :)
I found this P. Kaufmann "Slick" indoor/outdoor fabric on Amazon, and I LOVE it!
It's a really heavy canvas-type material that I'm hoping will hold up a little better than the Kelly Wearstler linen "Imperial Trellis" fabric I almost bought. With two small boys around, I don't want to have to worry about it at all. The best part is that this fabric is only $22/yard (a heck of a lot less than the coveted Kelly Wearstler stuff.....as lovely as it is!). So, if and when the stains happen, I can just grab my trusty staple gun and add another layer of fabric on top :)
I had some help from my talented friend, Astrid, which made the job a lot more enjoyable :)
This girl can do anything. I'm not even kidding you....she literally knows how to do everything. Check out her jewelry here and her blog here.
Absolutely NOT loving my hideous glass-top table with these chairs....so I'm on the hunt for a new wood table. I'll keep you posted!
But....even with the ugly table, I'm excited to have something new to look at. As always.
I hope you're enjoying these last few weeks of summer!!!
