I scored a set of contemporary chairs at the thrifts for a reasonable $8 a piece. The chairs are very heavy and sturdy but they needed to be updated. The size of these chairs is more suited to todays "larger" lifestyles. As for the original chairs I now use them in my craft room.
I selected a soft floral fabric, from my stash, for the seats. I also painted the wood a nice shade of cream.
Check out my (lack of) upholstery skills! Just a few wrinkles never hurt anyone!
