Office Chair Makeover {before & after}

As you know we have been working on our office...and it is SOOO close to being done. Since I know the suspense has to be killing you, I thought I would share a sneak peek at one of the projects I did for the room. 
Since my taste is a little on the expensive side, but my budget is clearly not I had to again get creative with an office chair solution. Luckily I scored some new{old} dining chairs over the summer so I could retire my old ones. Originally I tried selling the set on our local yard sale Facebook page, but then the more I looked at them I realized I was missing an opportunity to use them in the office!

Here's the before-

Blah...

         I bought them with the intention of redoing them a couple years ago, but only ever managed to change the the fabric( it was a must do right away project because they were disgusting). As dining room chairs they were so terrible...mostly because Ellery would push them all over the house...annoying! But...in an office, rolling is a GOOD thing, right!?

So, a couple coats of homemade chalk paint and some hand sanding later we have.....

THIS!!







BEAUTIFUL!!!
I love how they turned out! I did a pair of them and they look so cute in the office! I do have plans on recovering them again someday. I need to put a thicker cushion on them, so they are a bit more comfortable for long computer sessions, but they'll have to wait till I find some new fabric. What do you think?

Here's a side by side before and after-
