Vintage Chairs

Now that we have added an extra table in the studio some more chairs were in order I picked up these beauties for $10.00 each with a idea to give them a new look.


I really like the shape of these old chairs and the re upholstery seems like it will be super easy and viable to change on a whim. With a cushion on metal base and frame that lifts right out.



The only damage is to the rear of one chair and a small tear in the vinyl of one seat, which I plan to replace anyway. This chair still seems quite solid to sit in and I think if it posed a problem it wouldn't be super tricky to replace this part. ( I may be overestimating my ability though )


The varnish is in bad shape and scrapes off super easily I am thinking I might sand them and then paint with a gloss. I haven't decided for sure yet but am leaning to white frames. I have some laminate Nicey Jane striped fabric here which would be lovely easy seat covers but I am also drawn to something like this. Of course using what I have on hand would be the better option $ wise.


 I find the unusual angles in the design so nice but am really unsure about the 70's veneer on the seat back, I cant decide if I love it or hate it. 


I'll come back and show when they are done.
 I have never done anything like this before. Any tips or advice for me?
