Before & After: Dining Room Chairs.

I found these amazing high back chairs at a local thrift store.  I already had in mind what type of dining chairs I wanted.  I wanted sturdy chairs made out of wood, and I really wanted them to have a high back.  Lucky for me, look what I found!  The exact chairs I wanted.  The only problem was the upholstery was super nasty and outdated.  So I bought new fabric and reupholstered them.  It was easy as pie.  All you need is some fabric, scissors, a staple gun and lots of staples!  You can watch THIS TUTORIAL if you want to learn how to upholster your own chairs.

Christal these are so cute! I have a couple chairs I want to do, but they are fabric all the way around the top and the back too, and I'm afraid I would just ruin it. They turned out awesome though!
