The Breakfast Room: Progress - "New" 1960's era Chairs

We left our last breakfast room progress shot looking empty and chair-less. But thanks to our thrifty friend, Stephen, who found us these great vintage chairs, we are now have a place to sit in 1960's style.

On the one hand, I hated to paint them, but I really like how they turned out!

The Before...

The After...


I love the Amy Butler fabric.

Now for accessorizing! 

We also just finished a building project for this room from Knock-Off Wood (which I am absolutely in LOVE with. I seriously want to build, everything, now.) The big reveal will be coming up this week.....!

Wow, the chairs look amazing!!
I'm not really sure what you mean by 'reupholster' furniture (I've never done any DIY) but it seems like you'd be close to getting #5 on your SMART goals done!
