Bistro Chairs Revamped

I found these chairs last month at the flea market.  They were sturdy but the wood looked very dull and needed a make over.  One of my favorite shops to visit is a quaint and charming garden shop in La Canada, California.  The name of it is Julie O'Keefe Home and Garden.  While I always thought this type of chair was kinda cute, I was never enamored with them until I spotted some in Julie's shop.  They were similar to these and they were painted red and white.  I really wanted to give these chairs some pizazz and I think the new colors really do the trick.  Now they are fun and fresh looking.
This is how they started out.  Nothing to get excited about.
 Now they look like totally different chairs. 
 I used them last week for my red and white table scape post.  I love these chairs so much I think I am going to hang onto them for a while.  Julie has them in the arm chairs and the bistro chairs like I am showing here.  If you are anywhere in the area, stop at her shop.  You will not be disappointed.  As always, I thank you once again for visiting.
