Folding Chairs

Two weeks ago I found  these awesome 1930-40 Louis Rastetter & Sons Co. folding chairs at the antique mall. Normally they retail for $20-$40 a piece.  I was able to purchase all four for $40.

The fabric was horrible.

I did a bit of research and found that the original seat cushion was leather. So I have since decided to reupholster with a faux leather and add more padding.

It was actually quite easy to stretch the material and staple to the underside. Total investment was $40 for the chairs and $20 for fabric and padding.
