This chair was picked up at a garage sale for a few dollars:
It's a sturdy little chair, well built.
We slapped a coat of hot pink paint on it, and now it's one of the highlights of the room, as shown in the previous post.
We bought a sample can of paint from Lowes for less than $3. It was enough to paint this chair, and several other things.
VERY inexpensive update, but what a difference! Proving once again that beautiful doesn't have to = $$$$.
