Thinkdig’s Weblog

I’m Katie, a graphic designer who mostly somersaults through life. My blog is all about things that inspire me – be it art, design, or other snippets i find along the way.

trash to treasure

before-pic

The chairs in the condition we got them – the left one, a hideously ugly gold and the right one, a solid navy blue.

after-pic

Yay! All done! We recovered half of the chairs (left) in a green, steel blue, and tan stripe and the other half (right) in a graphic pattern of the same colors.

i am so thrilled to finally have a dining room table and chairs! it’ll be so much better for entertaining – here come the dinner parties, haha! t and i did the work ourselves, and he was even a good sport and helped me pick out fabric (accumulating brownie points, no doubt). i’m hoping to find a coordinating 3rd fabric to make a runner or window valances to complete the room.  overall, i’m pretty pleased with this whole experience – from buying off of craigslist to the recovering process. i love that we totally saved these pieces of furniture from going into a dump somewhere, and by doing so, saved ourselves major moolah. ahhhh, success. ain’t it sweet?
