I finally finished the chairs for my table. (Well I have to figure out how to attach the cushions, but more on that later).

So this is what I started out with...pretty, huh?

I do love that detail though.

Oh gross! What is living under these? Don't wanna know...just vacuum them up.

So here's the problem. These are what the cushions were attached with.  Such a nice array, don't cha think? That far right one is where someone jammed a golf tee in the hole and then screwed a screw through it.  I have no idea how I'm going to reattach them the seats are so hole-filled. 

Anyways.  I was gonna buy new foam because the old foam was literally 1/4 inch thick and you felt like you were going to fall through the chair at any moment. But then I realized how expensive chair foam is so I just used batting I had.

Batting sandwich anyone?

I primed and painted with spray paint (rust-oleum's semi-gloss latex enamel). 
Isn't she pretty?

I love this pattern. I think I paid $6.50 for 2 yards.

Quite a difference, huh?
