I ripped the wicker out of 2 of them because they had holes in them, but I havent finished the 2 with wicker yet so I'm wondering if I should just rip it out of them too. What do you think? After painting them white I distressed them with an anitique glaze in the cracks, and I had to get some cute fabric to cover the chairs too. For 4 chairs it cost less than $17. but that doesnt include the nail gun I bought to re-upholter the cushions. Now I have one for the future. My next project is a coffee table I got on Craigslist!
