Thrift Store Score {A Set Of Duncan Phyfe Dining Chairs}

Hey guys, remember I told you Mr. Frugalista found a set of four Duncan Phyfe Dining Chairs for $20.00 a piece?  Well I finally finished giving them a makeover and I'm thrilled with how good they look with the thrifted Duncan Phyfe Dining Table we scored last year.

Here is what they looked like before. Don't you just love the fabric pocket stuffed with a thin layer of foam and glued to the existing upholstery. Fancy Schmancy!

Much nicer now!  I picked up enough of this fabric for all four chairs, another piece I'm working on for this space, a table runner, and two pocket pillows for the living room.  It cost me a grand total of...wait for it...$24.00!

I sprayed these chairs using my handy dandy HomeRight Finish Max Pro paint sprayer using a 50:50 ratio of Annie Sloan Old White and Pure White Chalk Paint.

Using fine grit sandpaper I distressed the edges and the raised bits and followed up with a coat of clear wax.

I love how they look with the Duncan Phyfe Dining Table.

It feels so good to be putting the final touches to our Dining Room Makeover.  If you haven't seen the transformation of this brown-on-brown dining room before, take a peak at Phase One and Phase Two.

I have something special on the go for the wall side of the table.  It should be finished in a couple of days.  Here's a sneak peak...

What do you think of my fabric choice? Do you think it works well with the chairs and table? What about with the other elements in the room?
