Dining Room Chair Redo Thoughts
I don’t know if you recall my dining room chairs, but these are them –
I found two pairs separately at two different consignment stores. I mean what luck I had to be able to gather a set of four. And I got all four for a steal!
I spray painted them white and let them be. However, there are problems with them. 1. They sit too low and need seat cushions made. 2. The spray paint is chipping all over the place on them because my hasty self did not use a primer. 3. The caning on one of them is about to break through. I toyed with throwing the towel in on these chairs and buying different dining room chairs. But, I wasn’t ready to do just that. I find it harder to give up vintage finds. SO, I thought, how about giving them a new lease on life – paint them a new color, get fabulous seat cushions made and just ignore the caning issue? I’ve got the potential fabric picked out (a polka dot number). And I’ve been toying with the idea of going a new bold color for the chairs, when I came upon this image…
Designed by Anna Spiro
Anna Spiro used the exact same chairs in an outdoor design. Anna Spiro is only one of my all time favorite designers ever. She can do no wrong. None. She gets preppy, chic, modern, vintage, pattern play, color – all of it. She not only get it; she’s a master at it.
So, it’s settled then. My dining room chairs are getting seat cushions and a new color. Luckily for me, a friend of mine’s boyfriend is a master spray painter. I wonder if he’d like to volunteer to spray paint the chairs…especially if I ask him holding this face in front of me.
I mean, who could say no to that face?
Also, if he replies, “maybe” or “we’ll see” or some other non committal phrase – he’ll receive this face…
And if he gives a strong no, he’ll receive this face…
Man, 11 week olds really come in handy. And on that note, happy 11 weeks to my precious daughter and all of her many expressions.
