New Chairs

First of all, I need to admit: I tried to do these on my own. I found them for $20 a piece on craigslist, and thought I could do it myself. I painted them, (they need to be touched up again), and cut the fabric. I read several tutorials online, but every time I got close to start staple gunning the fabric onto the chair I panicked a little. (Okay a lot).

I saw a link on Caitlin Creer's blog for Brian Maxfield at Rocky Mountain Upholstery. I called several places and he was by far the cheapest. He was fast, nice, and did an awesome job.

The pillow is from my review at CSN stores. I love it. And I really love my new chairs.

(p.s. please ignore that my dining table has no chairs... I am working on that too :)

Beautiful! You made totally fresh chairs and I love them. I'm also loving that orange with grey/taupe color combo. Great job!

Do you mind telling how much it cost to have each chair done? I have similar chairs and have been searching for someone who is affordable!
