Well I am going to do it I am going to take the plunge. I have read all the wonderful blogs about repurposing things, so I am going to do it! I saw some great 50's style folding chairs the other day at the thrift store, they were $2 each. Should have bought them then, but I am going back to day with DH, hoping they are still there. When we have BBQ's we always are short chairs, so these would be perfect. I will take pics of them before I 'redo' them! Wish me luck!
