Very few of the furnishing or decorative items in my house are new. I love old furniture, vintage accessories, and almost anything other people might view as junk. I delight in curb shopping and have picked up many orphans item others have left on the curb. One of my greatest pleasure is seeing if I can make it useful again. So I thought as long as I was sharing one of my finds I would join Met Monday just for fun. You can join the fun as well by clicking the Met Monday logo on my sidebar.
This is one of five dining room chairs I rescued from the curb.
If you look closely at the picture you can see the seat covers and even the wood is covered with mildew.
After I brought them home I scrubbed the wood down with Murphy's soap and stripped off the seat covers. My dear hubby made several new wood seats for those that were in need of a new foundation.
Then I sanded the wood lightly and applied a gel stain. Stapled new fabric to the seats and I have a new set of chairs. No expense as I already had the fabric waiting for just the right project.
