An Italian dining room table set that I purchased from an auction years ago sat in my garage for years. The high back chairs were perfect for creating two sets of chair benches. I knew I had to do one set in red and the other in lime green. After shopping for some fabric, I was all set! Here are my finished benches. These are for sale! Email me for details.

How did I do it?
I removed the chair seats then spray painted the chairs. After attaching them together, I created a paper template so that I could cut out a piece of plywood for the bench seat. I used three inch foam and upholstered the bench seat with a heavy duck cloth material for durability. Then I placed the bench onto the chairs and attached them. After touching up the chairs a bit, they were complete!
