When I moved in to my first apartment, I bought two sets of dining chairs from a thrift store. They were old, tired, and had the most hideous paint and upholstery! One set was blue black with leopard! Anyhow, I bought some grass green paint and fabric with a vintage floral pattern to spruce them up. That was about 5 years ago and now I feel that its time for an update. Here is my update on a budget:
4 dining chairs (thrift stores sell them for as little as $8 a piece!)
4 cans of 2x cover spray paint in desired color-$12
2 yards of pretty fabric-If you’re thrifty, you can get the fabric for as little as $6. I did!
Depending on the previous coat of paint, you may need primer. I used 2 bottles-$6
Total: $56 for some snazzy new dining chairs!
Here’s my before and after:
