Thrift find touch up / Retro chairs with new upholstery

We picked up two new chairs for the board game table (yes, we have a designated board game table) at one of the local thrift stores last week. I like the style of them, but the old fabric was a bit old and.. ugly. So i gave them some new pale green upholstery.

I think the the style of the chairs go well with our retro couch (peaking out in the background above), and the pale green doesn't clash with the orange, which is proving to be a tricky color to decorate around.

Original upholstery
 A good thing with this kind of DIY projects is that you can make it look nice and smooth from the outside, and it doesn't matter that the under side of it looks like a mess.
