Today was an awesome day! We have been complaining for over a year that we don’t have a dining room table. So, today we set out for a day of consignment store hunting. To our surprise, we scored huge on our first stop at Goodwill.
We found an old dining room table, 4 chairs and a cool old coffee table for less than $150…That’s less than the cost of a chair at Crate & Barrel! So, now that we have these super awesome finds, we have to figure out how we’re going to bring them into the 21st century.
This is where the duel comes in. The hubby and I have different ideas… Here’s where we agree: The chair seats will be re-covered, and the wicker chair backs will be painted to contrast the wooden frames. Here are some pictures of the chairs and the fabric that each of us like…
I think we should pull the grey and the mustard. Although I absolutely love the blue, I don’t currently have any other blue in my house. I’d paint the table mustard, and the chairs grey. I’m not sure about the wicker…maybe the tan color.
My other half feels that we should go with red and mustard. I have to admit, this scheme would probably mesh a little better with some of the items we have haphazardly thrown together. I think we’d paint the table red and the chairs mustard. we could pull the green from the fabric for the wicker.
Everyone please share your opinions and ideas. I’ve got a few projects this week, so feel free to mull it over through the weekend. ;o)
