This before and after is the reason why we should all keep our eyes peeled on garbage day. Rescued from the curb-side (they had a 'free' sign attached to them) the chairs fell in to capable hands. The shoddy paint job was sanded down and covered with a black, low-luster, latex. The cracked seats were repaired with glue and clamps and then hidden with a lovely black and white fabric, which was applied with artist's medium. You can see the entire project over on Crafty Nest.
