Chairs, like horses, are most often supported by four legs, can hold up at least one person, and are used as dining surfaces during table droughts. Obtain haunch holders with today's Groupon: for $79, you get to attend a two-day Bring-Your-Own-Chair class at Something to Talk About Home Interiors (a $175 value).
The BYOC class instructors teach armchair warriors to transform vintage side chairs from worn and shabby to sleek sitting machines. Bring an old side chair into the store workroom for the two-day workshop, where provided materials (except fabric) and expert guidance will breath new life into the once-forgotten furniture. Armed with newfound knowledge, students will be able to go out into the world's living rooms and perk up old side chairs or imbue folding chairs with the moral fiber to stand up for their beliefs.
Class sizes are limited; check the calendar page for an idea of upcoming class times. Students should bring their chairs to Something to Talk About for approval and fabric yardage estimates two weeks prior to their class. Though fabric is not included in the price of this class, students can purchase fabric on site ($7+/yard) or bring their own.
