I was inspired by a chair that Sam's mum bought to pick up a couple of old chairs from the recycling shop at the rubbish tip and give them the shabby chic treatment!
I forgot to take a photo of what they looked like before, but they had rush woven seats which I cut off as they were very damp and dirty. Sanding them all down was the most time consuming bit!
I cut pieces of recycled board and filed them down to make them fit perfectly in the seat gap.
Here's the first layer of paint going on.
I didn't take any other photos of the process, so here they are finished! I upholstered them with spotty blue fabric.
I sanded down some areas with fine sandpaper to give that shabby chic look.
These chairs are for sale, collection only (or nearby delivery for a small charge), £30 each. So, if you like them and you live anywhere near Torquay, Devon, get in touch!
