DIY Fancy Smancy Burlap Chairs!

Recently I posted a few pictures of this table at our Second Saturdays in Folsom but I didn't really get to show it. This was a fun project for me and I'm sure it will be for you too!

This table I've changed multiple times and never happy with what I did. Finally I just went to a simple white. I found the chairs at Alameda in the back of a truck that said "free stuff".Cant get any better! I also painted them white. They matched the table perfectly! Match made in heaven.. :0)

I love the look of burlap so I decided to cover the seats in burlap to give the dinning set a rustic look. I wanted to make it a little more fancy, so I numbered each of the seats 1-4.

Ok so I finally got around to posting this! Welcome to my bedroom :0)Not much to it but its cozy and comfy! All of what I have are all flea market finds! I love everything in white..its so peaceful and feels so clean.One of my favorite things in my room is of course my iron bed along with my chandelier! One of my most sentimental things are my wedding shoes. They're so sparkly and glamorous and dirty but I like them that way..they remind me of that special day. Hope you like it!
