My Before/After farmhouse table!! Bought set for $25 off of Craigslist - it was an oak finish with awful red material on the 4 side chairs. Used Minwax Provincial 211 stain on top & kilz2 on everything else. Sanded down for the worn/used look & then put on a final coat of Minwax Satin clear poly. Took off red material to find this perfect burlap-like material. Stamped a Hebrew blessing on the cushions with black fabric paint. PERFECTO!!! (Check my board for more pics!!)
$25 Craigslist chairs before and after: With simple sewing and no previous major upholstery skills, these 1970s French chairs got a fabulous makeover and now look like $1200 Restoration Hardware chairs!
