This is epically awesome. Take a gross boring folding chair and make it fab with spray paint and some fabric. Tutorial at smartgirlstyle: folding chair makeover. Especially awesome because I have folding chairs instead of actual dining table chairs
Make "Baskets" Out of Cardboard Boxes. If you need pretty baskets in a custom size, use cardboard boxes cut to size. I wrapped 4 ply jute twine around the boxes and hot glue in place. Made liners from a drop cloth to line the boxes.
