My first thought was to re-paint them and use one in my foyer and place the other in my dinning room. My second thought was to paint them black and pair them with a desk that I have had for many years and create a game/puzzle table in the family room and my third idea was to re-paint them and use them in my office, where I have been patiently waiting for two chairs that coordinated one for my desk and one for client use and or the computer table.
I went back and forth between idea two and three for a long while. It was after my yard sale adventure at Lake Latonka, where I came upon these beautiful chair cushions, that I knew they would look great in my office. My office it would be! Well they have been waiting since August to get a re-haul and here recently, I finally pulled out all stops and here they are!
|Love the colors and pattern in these cushions!|
These are the two chairs that I had been using. I really like the looks and the feel of the chair that I was using for my desk, but again I wanted two that coordinated better together. (SHHHHHHHH the Assistant is sleeping)

|My computer chair (isn't she a beauty)|
|In process of painting|
|And here they are!|
|I'm not sure how old these chairs are, but the fact that there was straw used in the last layer indicates that they have been around for a long while . . .|
The layers: fabric, old dry vinyl, burlap, matting, straw, burlap again and springs!
|The Assistant approves.|
I also re-upholstered them. This allows for extra padding and if I get tired of the cushions, I am good!
