But it was $10 for three solid pieces and I'm unemployed. I nabbed a can of Rustoleum Aluminum paint ($1 clearance at Home Depot), sealant ($8 after 10% off mover's coupon), upholstery fabric ($10 for 3 yards at a designer's garage sale) and earned a sanding blister ;)
There is sufficient overhang on the side of the chairs to staple gun the fabric without dismantling the buggers. I also used sealant over the fabric so it won't move around and rip apart from the staples. This table gets a lot more use than the one in the dining room so they need to hold up to hardcore sitting!
I dragged a coarse brush across the top of the table to give it a brushed steel look. Its very obvious in person but rather muted in the pictures. I love metal furniture but its expensive and this stuff is a lot warmer to sit on ;)
I'm in the Hooked on Party at Hooked on Houses. Click to see what everyone else is into this week!
