Garage Sale Find...Recovering Chairs

For a very long time we had been searching for chairs to put in our shop that we could use for meeting with customers or if sewing class mothers wanted to sit and read during lessons they could. We also wanted to make sure they matched our decor (antique looking...) A few months back we went to a garage sale and saw two matching chairs. The fabric was very ugly but the chairs were sturdy and just the style we were looking for! We got them for $25 each! We immediately set out to recover them. About 3 weeks later we had them finished up and they look so beautiful in our shop!

Before we got started :)

See all those gold tacks? Each and every one had to come out before new fabric got put on

One evening we worked on them!

Here's what they look like now that they're completed!
