Chair Makeover: What Would You Do?

Chair Makeover: What Would You Do?

Dear Apartment Therapy readers, I need your help! I found a set of four dated folding chairs with pretty bones in my parents' basement and am contemplating making them over for my kitchen, a mostly-white room which you can see after the jump.

The current kitchen chairs are IKEA outdoor models which are impossible to clean. They also don't fit well between the table legs, but the newly-discovered folding chairs are a whopping four inches narrower apiece! I'd like to perform an inexpensive makeover before switching them into the space by spray painting the frames and reupholstering the cushions. There are so many crazy fabrics out there that I would love a chance to use, but the ornate nature of the seat backs makes me think that solid-colored surfaces is the way to go.

Below, the chair is broken down into its simple parts without the distractingly dated colors. What would you do to the chairs? Feel free to email your mockups and I will post my favorite designs at a later date.
