Wooden Chairs {and their future}

I have 3 lil chairs...{Very lil chairs}
They need a facelift.
What say ye?
I got these for FREE...I'd say it was a steal.
{ An extra pair of legs... }

SHOULD I DISTRESS? {What color?}

SHOULD I NAME THEM? NUMBER THEM? SHOULD I PAINT THEM A VARIETY OF COLORS?

SHOULD I PAINT THEM DIFFERENT ANIMAL PRINTS?

MY KIDS WONT STAY LITTLE FOR LONG...IT'S A PROJECT I CANT DELAY...WHAT DO YOU THINK? ANY IDEAS? {Wow, thanks for lining up these chairs mom...Mmm, banana}

Lucky duck! I have been wanting some cute little chairs, can't beat free! So many options. I do like the animal print idea. If it were me I would just paint them the colors to match my little boys room.

I love the animal print ones! I have this cabinet in my computer room that I call the "zebra" cabinet! It was given to me and it was already painted with a zebra pattern! I love it!

I like distressed idea...3 diff. colors AND number them somehow(the seats possibly)...and then I want to see HOW you distress them. I REALLY want to learn how!!! PLEASE ...pretty please...

I like the various coloured chairs. You could paint them each a different colour and lightly distress them (I'm not real big on the REALLY distressed shabby chic country look).
Good luck, and looking forward to seeing the finished projects!

I think (giggle) that you should paint them black, distress the dickens out of them and give them to your sister-in-law for her birthday this week for my porch to match my new black shutters. You asked, there is my honest answer (ha!). FREE?? Lucky. Loves, T

So many fun choices! I'm a fan of distressing or different colors!

The animal prints would be so much fun!!! What about painting and distressing them and then putting a three word phrase (one word on each chair)? I was thinking I <3 U, or Live, Love, Laugh, Happily Ever After, there's so many you could do!!! Great steal!

I can't help but see them as a bench (like my friend Rose made) you can see it here:

These scream bench to me. Bolt them together, paint them black, distress them and add a zebra print cushion. Or go high gloss and modern. Just a thought. :-)

I'd say different distressed pastel colors! Can't wait to see what you do...

Distressed but with different colors, and you could use colors underneath for the distressed look, say you painted the chairs green, pink and blue, under the pink use a green, under blue use yellow..etc.
