What to do with Wonky, West Elm Window Panels

I’ve loved the look of West Elm’s chevron style curtains for a while. A few months ago, I found stacks of them at the Pottery Barn Outlet, and I grabbed six of them for next to nothing. I (meaning The Hubs) hung them in our living area (family room/breakfast room combo), and I liked them. Mostly. Two of the panels were slightly wonky, and looking at them made me queasy. So, I (meaning The Hubs) took them down, and they sat folded in my closet. (I did the folding all by myself.) Finally, I decided to try using one of the panels to recover the seats of my vintage shield-back chairs.

The seats were covered in a fairly hideous silky print:

Ta da! I love them!
