I found these chairs sitting outside in the rain, getting ruined at the furniture graveyard.
The finish was ruined and the upholstery was kind of musty.
I spray painted the frames black and recovered the seats with tan muslin.
I covered the staples with black double-fold bias tape, hot glued shut.
I traced a salad plate on the fabric with a pencil and then freehanded the letters
and went over the whole thing with a paint marker. I was sort of inspired to do this by the postmark bulletin board from Pottery Barn.
