Retro Chair Remodel

Can you say 70's? This chair can.

I know, I know. This style isn't for everyone. But I dig it, man. It's the cats meow, baby.

Anyways, I found these at an estate sale. Picked up 3 of them for $5 total. Another score! They were pretty rough, with lots of rust. So, I started my favorite pass-time - sanding. Can you say sanding? YAY! [insert sarcasm]

Okay. So I took them apart. Sanded. Then sanded with some CLR. Then sanded some more. Some paint. Some bright, funky fabric. And voila! Oh...the fabric. Only $2 a yard on clearance. Say it - score!

Sorry the photos are in such a drab spot. This is my "work in progress" room.

































What do you think. Would you have grabbed these or passed them up?
