|Found these old restaurant chairs on ebay a couple of years ago. Very sturdy. Yes, that is a lovely maroon vinyl seat.|
Found some cute fabric to recover the seats. The fabric was actually an inexpensive sheet set from Walmart. The colors matched the breakfast room perfectly and since I had to cover six chairs, it was affordable.
Spray painted the chairs with black. Added extra cushion and batting to the seats to make them more comfy.
