I bought the chair on the left for $3 at a church sale. The church burned down a few months ago and they were raising money to rebuild and I cashed in! :D. I also got a vintage typewriter table too.
I would say the chair is at best marginally better and I am hesitance to say the final product was worth the effort.
Total cost was less than $15. I borrowed some sand paper and some base coat spray, and then bought a $5 can of 'regal blue gloss' spray paint and got the seat cushion for around $4.50 from IKEA.
