Thrift Cafe Chairs Reveal

I’m not sure if you remember, but a loooong time ago I purchased these chairs for $4 each. I finally got around to finishing them, all ready for the holidays.

It took me all day to sand and paint 8 of these chairs. I used this paint and am happy to say the long hours were worth it! Love the dark espresso and gloss finish!

I think it’s fair to say we have more than enough chairs for a household of two! We’ll be using these ones as occasional chairs for when we have a full house.

Let the party season begin! Have you found any great thrift finds lately?

    Thanks everyone! Brook, the people at home depot recommended this paint so I could skip priming and not worry about it chipping or flaking off.
