There’s something about them that makes the planzilla in me bubble to the surface. Perhaps it’s the more-often-than-not cheap look of un ironed chair covers or the messiness of it all when a room is filled with 200+ chair covers and puffy sash ties or even clumsy me always getting my feet tripping over the chair covers – either way it just doesn’t float my boat. Seeing the price of chiavari chairs or other fancy chairs, I completely understand why people are still using this plastic chairs. But there are actually many other affordable ways to spruce up your plastic chairs and make them look very pretty.
