These chairs were downright ugly; but sturdy... and that's what sold me on them. They even came with a nice enough table (not a match but close).
Before I even painted them, a customer who has bought some things from me for her new lake house decided she wanted them and wanted them white. Then she dithered about the color for the seats.... then she said they were too small for her large dining table.... so, I did the seats in the fabric of my choice!
I found this printed canvas duck fabric at Hobby Lobby and fell in looooove. :)
