Bargain Chairs

I'm linking with a few parties this week. First is Metamorphosis Monday with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch.




Updating 8/12 to join in with Miss Mustard Seed's Furniture Friday. Check out the good stuff here.Furniture Feature Fridays

I love joining in with Style Feature Saturday at Perfectly Imperfect. Shaunna is our hostess.Photobucket


These chairs were found at the same garage sale as the heavy dresser I wrote about here. They were stored in a storage locker for years and became very dried out.


They were also very dirty. I washed them down with a wet rag. I didn't want to put too much effort into them as they had no finish and were a little rickety. Husband reglued and then I tried the spray paint. Didn't satisfy. Spray paint marks. Ick.



All Cleaned.





They also received the paint brush treatment with the Elegant Lace color of paint by Glidden. Much improved.
These are going to college with Daughter's BF. If they fall apart, I won't really care. They were only $5 each!
Thanks for looking!
