I had a few extra minutes on Easter evening and decided to start taking apart those rusty chairs a la Warrenton.
Lucky for me the back and bottom cushions just unscrew from the base. Easy Peasy
See those holes on the frame? That’s where the seat and back screw in. Not to bad but quite a bit rusty. Three more to go…
To say these suckers need a good cleaning would be the understatement of the century. I am still in debates over whether I will use some elbow grease and a brillow pad or take them to get sandblasted. Either way that rust has got to go.
I love the curved shape of the base and I think with some chrome/silver spray paint these suckers are going to look a million bucks without braking my single girl bank account.
If you couldn’t tell the cushions are pretty nasty and need a full overhaul. That vinyl and rusted nail heads are headed to the trash and new padding and fabric will take its place.
Here are some fabrics I have seen that make me giddy. Only problem is I have no idea what to actually put on these chairs. In my fantasy world I am hoping it will just come to me – in real life I know I will just close my eyes and play “inny meany miney moe”
So what do you think? Any fabric opinions??
