Chairs transformed

I forgot to take a before picture and I really wish I did because these were super ugly chairs! The have the 60/70s decade cane back with the brown stippled paint effect. I primed them and painted them a creamy white then used my sander to distress them.

I padded the cane with batting then covered it with this gorgeous fabric. I have the same fabric for my kitchen window valence so it'll bring to over to the eat-in kitchen area. The green velvet is the original fabric on the chairs and with the original paint it looked horrible. I actually liked that color with the fabric I added but decided to go with a textured brown microfiber. I do have a 2 and 5 yr old!

Here's the finished product! I used nail head trim to finish it off.
