I found these little chairs at the thrift store.
Did I need more chairs?
But how could I resist that spring green color?
And the nail head trim? And their sturdy construction? And then there was the price.
Seven dollars a piece!
So they came home with me and sat in storage for about a month until I could figure out where to put them, and how I wanted to remake them. The blond wood finish just wasn't for me.
I cleaned and cleaned and gave the wood a good sanding and then cleaned some more. Then I pulled out a mistint color from my collection. It's dark brown with a hint of green. A couple of paint coats later, some sanding, and some more cleaning and now I'm very happy with the way they look. I placed them on each side of my old dresser in the living room. They'll come in handy for extra seating. But until then, they look very pretty, each holding a framed fern botanical.
