Before and After

A few years ago

these two chairs were bought for 35.00 at a yard sale. I had thought of redoing them myself, but was not sure that I could really do them. Then I thought of slipcovers and could not fined a fit because these chairs are very old.

Arney and I decided this would be our Anniversary present to each other.So we had them done and I love em. Here is the before and after.Bella #2 001

Happy Anniversary! Fifty years is quite an accomplishment.

The chairs look beautiful. I love that deep red. I have an older wing back chair that I'd like to have re-done and I always thought it would look good in red.
