47th Penny Pinching Party - Reupholstered Chairs

Tuesday, August 17, 2010

The Refinished Furniture Party is still going on so don't forget to post your furniture projects here:
The Thrifty Home Refinished Furniture Party

My furniture project for this week is another project I got from my grandmother's house. I love these cute little cane chairs, but the blue velvet fabric was old, dirty, and dated. All they needed was some new fabric and ta-da! No painting this time (although I considered painting them a darker brown).
I wish I had a better before picture. I think one of my kids took this one because I don't remember taking it.
I thought that the buttons on the back dated them so I replaced the back cushions with pillows.

What have you been working on this week? Post your thrifty ideas here or go to the Refinished Furniture Party to post any furniture projects.
