the chairs: progress

by Stacie Bloomfield / 5 comments

Remember this inspirational post about my dream dining room table and chairs? Well, I got my fabulous table. Then I began "collecting" inexpensive wooden chairs that I could paint the same color in order to unify the decor.

Can I tell you that I have had the hardest time finding inexpensive chairs? Everyone wants like $40 for a chair? Come on people! If I am going to buy a beaten, old, squeaky chair, the price must be right. Nevertheless, I have found and painted 2 such chairs, with a 3rd waiting in the wings for a nice sanding and paint job.
I decided to paint the chairs the same color as our fireplace to attempt to tie the color schemes of the two rooms together. Plus, I have a good half a gallon of the sagey green paint left, so I saved a bit of money too!

I will keep you updated on my progress!

    Colleen, Thanks! Glad you like them! Here’s the link to the blog post with the table. It is simple and square and we found it at a thrift shop.
