What can you do with a chair???

When things like this happen....

Then things like these happen...I have new accessories for the mantel! I can't wait to paint them an aquay blue with a dark stain! (It's in the works!)

I knew the old seat pad could be used for something! And then I remembered my old blanket box with a crappy looking lid from little children climbing all over it.And lastly for the two chairs that survived! they got a makeover! My seat cushions were pretty nasty, so I recovered them! But now I only have two chairs at my dining room table!! LAME! I have been looking all over for chairs and I just can't find the perfect ones. So I have decided I am going to find 4 old ones from random garage sales paint them the same aquay blue as my new mantel decorations and beat and stain the heck out of them, and then add a black and white hounds tooth seat cushion to each. But now I just need garage sale season to get here!!Look how nasty that seat cover is above!! I found this fabric at hobby lobby and I LOVE the way they turned out.
