Another DIY furniture makeover.

I bought these country style chairs and the dining room table for $30 off of Craigslist {of course!} with a plan.  We didn’t have enough furniture to fill our home as we moved from a smaller house to one that is double the size.

I thought they were kind of ugly, but there was certainly potential there.  So, I took off the cushion, painted the chair, recovered the cushion, and put it all back together again.  It contrasts nicely with the DIY hutch makeover that I did with a black base with blue as the main color.

The chairs {and the table, whenever it gets done} are painted black with a blue base.

What do you think?

Then I went over it with the black paint and rubbed off random areas to have the blue show.

I love how the blue just peaks through the black.  They’re not too black with that bit of blue accent, I think.
