A chair befor and after

About 10 years ago i bought some dining room chairs at my local second hand store. They didn’t look very nice and were extremely uncomfortable to sit on. But they were the only chairs there the day I decided I wanted dining room chairs. They served their purpose for many years before they were relegated to the annex only to see the day of light when I needed an extra seat or two. 



I have been thinking about giving them a makeover for a long time. And because paper is and always will be my favorite material I decided to cover it in thin scrapping paper covered with three layers of lacquer.
I have now been looking at the chair for a few weeks and have decided that the décor was a bit too much.  So the next chair will get its leg painted in a solid color.
