Project Day: Revamp an Old Chair

It's Friday again and it's project day again. Today I want to show you what I did with an old kitchen chair I found at the dump and purchased for $5.00. It was so horribly brown and ugly. I roughly sanded it back with an electric sander then painted it white. I found an old pillow case that I cut up and placed over the seat (no sewing required as seams were already there). To finish it off I roughed it up a little to create some wear and tear. All up it took a little over 2 hours to do. I loved the end result so much I went back and purchased the other 3 matching chairs that were left behind. I will give them all the same kind of treatment. I think they kind of like it. Have a great weekend.
