Dumpster Dive-In

I wrote a couple weeks ago about 2 chairs I found by the dumpster at my apartment complex.  They sat on my front porch for almost a month before I finally found inspiration to do anything with them.


I had to sand the metal to remove the rust from it.  I spray painted them a metallic bronze-y brown color.  I sanded the woodpiece on the back and stained and varnished it.  The seat was recovered in a matching paisley pattern.

I'm in love with how they turned out!  I'm selling them at a consignment shop so hopefully someone will want to take them home :)
