Before and After free chairs

(sorry about the pictures being sideways).

Here's the story of five chairs sitting on the side of the road with a "Free" sign on them as I was driving into my neighborhood. I rescued them. They were so old the color was back in style. I loved the back of them. They have the black distressed glazing on them already.

The boys and I worked together one Sunday for two hours. They unscrewed the cushions from the frame and pulled staples as supervised. Then, I recovered them with leftover fabric my mom gave me.

The best news was, we were able to give these to a family just relocated to our town from Arizona and didn't have dining chairs. The after picture is of them being loaded into my friend's minivan.
