Fun Chairs

The PLAN...get 4 cheap garage sale chairs and paint each one different
for my daughter's apartment.
First chair...$3 (from my Diamonds In The Rough! Post HERE)

I cut a board and upholstered a seat cushion and added cording.
Second chair...Free at a garage sale

Now, I need to find two more and one will be painted green and the other yellow.
