We were up in Seattle for a family reunion earlier this summer. While we were there we went through my grandma’s stuff at my aunt & uncle’s. It’s been 2 years since she passed away and we needed to go through her stuff to figure out what we all wanted to keep. I knew I wanted these chairs that she and my grandpa had. As much as I love the wood as it is, I wanted to spray paint them yellow. We chose Rust-Oleum Sun Yellow (Gloss). I didn’t want to sand them since I have no patience when it comes to sanding. So because we didn’t sand it, we used Rust-Oleum white spray paint & primer in 1 (satin).

Next was finding the perfect fabric. The old fabric had to go…no offense to my grandma! We went to a local fabric store and we didn’t find anything good so we went to JoAnn’s and came across the zebra fabric. I was surprised that Tyler liked it. He insisted we go with it. My eyes refused to stop looking, I secretly wanted to find something better and right then I saw this fabric with polka dots that were the perfect size! It reminded me of Elsie’s yellow chairs with polka dots. I knew I wanted this! Tyler wasn’t going to give up his zebra fabric so we agreed to do both to mix things up. I’m so happy with how they turned out and I love them. They are really comfortable to sit on.
