Look what I found at GW!

Sure would love to know how much they originally were! Anyone know how to search that? They aren't on the current Thomasville site. I would love to keep them this wonderful color but there is this:
And I've got this sunny vision. So, I'm going to paint them YELLOW and cover them in this:

And that's exactly what I did:


The color is Rustoleum Strawflower in Satin. The trim around the back is NAVY!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how they turned out.

AND, just wait until you see what I've done with this:

It's actually upside down here. It's got a crackle on it that I'm not crazy about, but I'm testing something with it:

Don't freak out. It's going to be awesome!

Really? You found more cute chairs? And at GW! And I suppose you paid what...I need to know, so I can be fully jealous! They look so cute. I do have this stuff I use on wood called Kramer's Best Antique Improver. Works wonders. Have you tried it?

Ok... I go in GW regularly and there is never anything w/potential. Seriously, it is rows and rows of ellipticals! Great find & great work!

Those chairs are freakin awesome! I love the punchy fabric. I am dying to see what you end up doing with the spackled piece.

Amazing. Will you sell them or do you have room for them in your house?

Great transformation! I love them! I enjoy perusing my GW store but I typically find good deals on clothing and accessories only. The prices for furniture are generally quite high.

There is a much larger one I've been meaning to go to, now you've inspired me to check it out.

If you don't mind me asking, how much were the chairs? I love hearing about great deals!
