I stopped in at our Church rummage sale and found these not-so-lovely-but-tons-of-potential chairs. There was a set of 5 but on all of the other ones, the weave on the backs was ripped and I was not in the mood to try to fix THAT problem. These 2 were in the best shape so I took them home. The guy at the rummage sale was a little concerned. He said that they were pretty beat up and ugly. I agreed but told him that they were just crying for my help. (Can't you hear them?)
While I was waiting for the primer to dry, I decided to tackle the seats. I bought outdoor canvas at Joann's (with a coupon, of course). It will be less likely to fade and is a bit more weather resistant. I decided to just cover over the vinyl/leather that was already ont he seats. I was kinda scared of what I would find under that vinyl/leather. EEK!
