Ahhhh, i finally got this project done. I'm ashamed to admit that it's been a decade in the making. For realz. I bought these chairs at a garage sale when Griffin was in diapers (he's 12 now). I got them for a dollar a piece! They were filthy and gross. I think they had been in a garage for years and years. After I scoured them, i painted them each a different shade of blue.
My mistake was leaving the gallon of paint and brush by the freshly painted chairs. Toddler Griffin quietly found them and decided they needed a little more paint! I was able to mostly fix them, but there is evidence of his michieviousness on them still today and i LOVE that.
The part of this project i never got to was recovering the yucky seat covers. I don't really know why. I just never got to it. Until yesterday.
I actually ordered this oilcloth a year ago from here. I love polka dots and i love black and white.
I think i removed 10,000 rusty old staples. It was very hard work and my hands hate me today. By the sixth chair, i just couldn't do it anymore. My fingers were so sore. Riley rescued me and finished the job. Such a good boy!
There's just one more thing that i think they need. See those seat backs? They are like little blank canvases to me. i think i want to number the chairs. No vinyl numbers or perfect stencils for me...just my hand lettering. What do you think? Anyone, anyone...Bueller?
