Linda @ Painted Whyte April 18, 2010

I hope everyone had a really good weekend.   I spent at least an hour in fabricland yesterday trying to decide on a fabric to recover the chair cusions with.  If the store wasnt closing at that moment i probably would still be there.  I ended up leaving with 2 - both in a Chanille Dsmask - one in white and one in a pretty ice blue.  And the exciting part is one of them was in the clearance section for only $8/meter woohoo.  When i brought it home i realized they match the wallpaper in my built ins perfectly.  So until they find a new home they will fit nicely inside the house.  Tomorrow i will start the painting process!!  I always find it so exciting to start something new and then again when i am finally finished.  If any of you didnt see the before shots of the two chairs i found at Goodwill here they are for you to see again.  I should have some after pictures towards the end of the week.

I restored a dining set identical to your chairs. It's a lot of work but well worth it! The result was very inspiring. Luckily for me, my best friend bought it so I get to enjoy the fruits of my labour when invited for dinner!
