Mismatched Chairs are hard to find

I've been working on these chairs for my former breakfast nook, now craft room for quite some time. I had 2 chairs that filled the bill. Nice flat legs to glue on letters and upholstered (or will be someday) seats. I was sure I could scoot around to a few garage sales and pick up a couple more. After all, I found the first two at home. But after months of looking...although admittedly I'm not much of a garage saler, I've decided to just finish up the two that I have. I haven't found fabric for the seats yet, so this project is on hold.
My Christmas vacation must have been one week too long, because before it was over, I had ripped up the whole upstairs to add some green paint. What a mess! But now it's looking pretty good except for the blue valances in the b'fast nook. Of course, I'm too cheap to buy new ones...these came from Target 6 or 7 years ago so instead I decided to add these trees and birds. The inspiration came from some cards I made over spring break. What do you think?
