Folding Chair Makeover

A couple of weeks ago I found these adorable folding chairs at the flea market.  They had been left out in the rain and the fabric was badly damaged.  I stripped off the fabric and the foam underneath was in very good condition.

 I cut some drop cloth to fit the seats, stenciled a laurel wreath in white and used painters tape to mark off my stripes which I did in red.  This gave them a Frenchy grain sack feel and freshened up the chairs so they are ready for their new life.
 This is what the chairs looked like when I found them.  Not so attractive then, but now they are like new again.

Thanks for stopping by.
