These chairs were given to me by my new friend, Butch. They once belonged to his grandmother. I cleaned, primed, and painted them in flat black before sealing with polyurethane. Then, i reupholstered the seats with leftover facric that I had lying around. Since the cane was pretty severely broken on two of them, so I decided to remove it and replace them with upholstery as well. I fell in love with these, and decided to keep them. That are currently in my dining room. So rad.
