Plain Jane Kitchen Chairs Made New

We have had these kitchen chairs for almost three years now, stock from Ikea, and I was starting to get a bit tired of them to be honest. They were a bit scuffed and the screws in the legs made them look cheap. I started by covering the screws and any of the cracks with wood filler and sanding it down. Two of the chairs needed additional wood filler so I left them on the deck and began painting on the remaining two. I must say that I made a bit of a mistake with the white paint I bought for this project. If I could do it all again I would pay more money for a better paint. I purchased BEHR for my other project and would recommend it to anyone. It required only one coat whereas this white paint has had about three coats already! Well I guess you learn something new everyday.

Two bright white chairs.
All that is left is to sew some new cushion covers for these chairs. Oh and do something about the pitiful table they are now sitting around. The table had a bit of an accident when we were moving here... now there is a big chunk missing...

I like this style of chair. I might go to Ikea when I am in Edmonton next weekend... we need chairs badly!!!!!! We have 3 rickety walmart chairs... and that is it.

They are out on the deck, they are the outside chairs.
