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 :)
