This year we decided to host our first Christmas party with some friends! We were excited but there was one problem. Not enough seating. Our table only sits 6 people and we had invited 10 for a sit down dinner. I knew I could buy a card table from Target to extend our table but what do about chairs? Lucky me, as I was driving home one day I saw that someone had set on the side of the street four kitchen dining chairs! They did not look good and when I asked my husband to throw them in the truck he looked at me like I was crazy! But he knows me and he went along with it. I saw something that I liked about the chairs, the etching and cut out of the wood. It was really unique and pretty. The chairs were painted a dirty orange-yellow-cream with some antiquing paint that looked as bad as it sounds. The chair seats were covered with old fashioned floral prints from the 80's. No bueno!! But I had a vision.
They turned out amazing! They look like something out of a designer furniture store but they cost us less than $50 for all four! Oh and our party turned out great!! We ended up with only 6 guests so we didn't need the chairs after all but we used them and put our older ones away. This was one of my favorite projects so far! What do YOU think?? :)
