We have a saying- free is a very good price- especially when it comes to DIY projects. We were driving home from the beach house last week and I spotted a chair on the side of the road in a free pile ( there was an actual free sign!) so I jumped out of the truck and threw it in the back. It was very solid but had very ugly worn wood with a black pleather seat cover. Here is what I did with my free chair…and $7.99 shower curtain fabric from thrift store.
