I started with some nice sturdy chairs that I picked up at a garage sale.
One of them had very good springs but the other had to be extensively repaired.
After all the repairs and restuffing comes the fun part, applying the fabric.
I found this great French print fabric. Just in case you were wondering; in English this means, "Make Yourself At Home".
These chairs didn't even make it into the store. They sold right away to a friend of a friend and I couldn't be happier! It's nice to think that other people like your work.
