I recently bought some new dining chairs on craigslist to replace my old eames-style chairs. Refurbishing (?? is that the right word?) them was a lot of fun, and they turned out just how I wanted. Only problem is, they don't look that great around my table. I might end up re-selling them now and looking for something else. Hmmmm...
Anyway, here they are before:
Okay looking, but the seats were very stained and the finish had some scratches.
Here's one of the chairs during the refinishing:
And here they are after!
Well, just two of them. There are six total. More pics:
I spray painted them off-white and covered the seat with this really pretty ikat fabric that's actually a duvet I got (on sale; lucky me) from West Elm. I was looking for a pattern just like this, so I was lucky to find it.
Love the greek key detail on the back:
