So this is probably NOT what we should be doing right now, but I'm so excited to have them! We found both chairs at different garage sales, and we are suckers for fun projects. The first little chair was in really bad shape, I wish I had a before picture! But I didn't think to take one. It was pretty scratched up, and the seat was made up of a few strings tacked to the wood. Ross sanded and re-painted the wood, and then he RE-WEAVED the entire seat! It looks so good! The chair also came with some really crappy little cushions that I made new covers for. I personally think it looks better without them, but with the cushions it's a little more comfy.
