Chairs makeover

This Passover Seder we were nine together and as my table has 8 chairs, I came one short.  Just the other day I saw these two guys standing next to the garbage bin. Not to happy looking, but real wood.

I painted them with two coats of Pearl Grey (that's what I had still in my shed)

They would get the Ikea slipcover I use for my other chairs to match, but I wanted also to cover that hideous old fabric. I  re-covered them with fabric I had bought in the sale at Contemporary Cloth store called Elizabeth Rose - Tolle - Blue Ecru - In the Beginning Fabric.

oops photo came out off focus
 with the washable Ikea slipcovers (easy because of my cats)

I love the result! 

and the Passover seder was wonderful!

We are blessed!

I have at home a real chair of Brothers Thonet - despite the chair is very old it is still very hard and strict.
