I LOVE to frequent the Goodwill. It's hit or miss. Somedays there is absolutely nothing but junk and somedays you score a find like these chairs! When I found them they were in dire need of some love. They didn't even have seats, but the details are amazing, and at $2.50 a piece how could I not buy them?? Look at the detail on the back or splat of the chair--love the music reference!
Here's a quick look at before...
|Love the detail!|
I gave them both a quick sand and had to glue and tack a few of the parts to make it sturdy. Then I hit it them with Rustoleum Black Satin spray paint and a spray polyurethane to protect them. I made seats out of plywood (yes, I used a jigsaw and still have my extremities!) and attached foam and batting and covered them with fabric I picked up at Joann's a while back on clearance. Total all in it's under $10.00 for each chair.
So, what do you think? I'm pretty happy with how they turned out especially considering how much the entire project cost. I just picked up a table at the big Nashville flea market that will go perfect with this pair and make for a great set. I'll keep you posted on that project as well. The table was $5.00 and also in desperate need of some TLC...
