I have to share with you the great bargain I found at our local New & Used store. I found four of these chairs for $14.95 each. I just couldn't pass them up so I bought all four. They need some cosmetic finishing...the wood needs to be refinished and I definitely need to recover them or make slipcovers for them, but other than that, they are very sturdy and very comfortable.
Now, I need some suggestions and help from all of you. My husband built our table a few years ago, as we needed a table to sit twelve people. (I had my family come for Christmas.) He also had plans to build 12 chairs, but ran out of time after finishing six chairs. I think he has since lost interest in finishing the remaining chairs, so I have been on the hunt to "outfit" my table.
Here are a few questions that you can help me with:
1. Should I only use two of the new chairs - one at each end of the table and keep the existing chairs? Or, should I use all four and find two other chairs for each end of the table and keep the existings chairs for extra?
2. Should I recover them or sew slipcovers? If slipcovers, a ruffle at the bottom?
3. What color of fabric? I love all the white slipcovers out there, but I don't think that would fit in my house. So, any suggestions? My kitchen is a tan colour with a cinnamon color accent, wood floors and white cupboards.
4. Should I paint my table? I had thought about painting the bottom of it a creamy white and then refinishing the tabletop with a dark walnut stain.
Your help and suggestions would be welcomed!!
Thank you for stopping by.
