Hi.  Just came across some of the awsome "funky chairs" on this site.  So much fun to see what other people create... so I thought I would share some of my creations.  I got every one of these chairs either for free or for under 5.00. Found the dining room set on the street.  One leg had come off the table.  I had the leg fixed, painted and distressed it and updated the seat upholstery and voila! - Sold for 200.00!

CottageElements writes: Amazing how you can transform a $5 chair! Love the dining room set. And I think $200 was a steal. Great job!
