I’m joining in on Amanda’s second Decorating Dilemmas Party with a dilemma of my own.
I bought these chairs at an estate sale almost two years ago. I’ve yet to do one thing to improve them. In fact, they look worse now because they spent the summer of 2008 outside. I think that I paid $10.00 for each of them.
This is what they looked like in December of 2007. I had such high hopes for these chairs. I love the design and the fact that they are old.
Here’s what they look like now:
This one is a little bent. See how it leans ever so slightly to the right?
The seat on this one has an indentation that holds rainwater.
You can see that both are covered with multiple layers of paint.
Would you keep them? Or would you try to unload them on the next sucker on Craiglist?
If I keep them, what color should they be painted?? How would you remove the old, chipped paint?
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
