Turn Folding Chairs Into Trendy Fun!

Click HERE TO GET ENTERED in my current giveaway!



I was putting away my very ugly but perfectly functional folding chairs after having a houseful of ladies in for a brunch.  The seat popped off as I was struggling to fold one and I thought "Well by George, I'm not putting this thing back on until I recover it.  These things are getting overhauled.  Pronto!


I used one of my vinyl tableclothes that I bought in Texas.  They were such a steal that I risked my luggage being overweight when I flew home.


I get in a hurry I guess. 
 This is what always seems to happen when I spray paint....


I'm not sure if the spray paint is as durable as the can makes it sound, but anything is better than what it was before!  A few scratches in some blue paint will be an improvement over "ick".

  12. These look adorable and the tablecloths are a brilliant idea. I get the same thing with spray paint - I put it on too thick because I'm excited to get it done.

  19. Using a vinyl tablecloth for the chair fabric is genius! I am planning on recovering my kids little table and that would be a perfect solution. Thanks again for linking up to The Creative Exchange!
