Here's what the chairs looked like before I did anything with them. They looked pretty awesome but when you feel the cushioning, it feels like it has rice inside because all the foam had disintegrated.
Here's one of the faux bois tables that I bought at the same place I got the chairs. They needed repainting too.
Here's one of the chairs completely torn apart and new burlap attached.
And this is how you cut holes in foam with a special attachment on a drill that is
actually set to reverse--that way it doesn't tear up the foam.
