Paint it Black

Remember those junk store chairs from 2 weeks ago?


Check 'em out now !


I added nice cushy seats and sweet little slip-covers.

Not bad, eh?

  6. I bought 5 chairs similar to those. I got 5 chairs for $10.00! They were painted a greenish color and I painted them black. I am working on the cushions and will post pics whenever I'm done. Yours look great. Black paint is the best.
