"I'm not an Elephant" Chair

There are times when some things just blow my mind away, to clarify here it is:
See the big nail/pin on this chair?
How do you even sit on it?
Oh, wait,  it gets even better:
See the little tinsels hanging from this chair? Or the fabric?
Maybe if it was on an elephant, but this chair,oh right , two chairs, had me going.
So I had to buy them, my husband still doesn't know why I had to save them, and my little 4yr old girl wonders why I always have old chairs in the van?!? Who? Me?  
Here they are today:


First I removed all the nails and fabric, sanded down and primed the frame(oil base primer) and spray painted it the color of choice(orange). I chose orange for the frame to go with the orange detail on the fabric I used to reupholster the seat, I also replaced the foam on the seat.

I like the happy fabric and color and don't miss the tinsels and nails. What do you think?
Until next time,
Cheers for all the saved chairs out there!
