Because it’s been a week since I teased about our dining room chairs being done and I still don’t have our last DIY post on that ready (Will and I have been sick all week so not much has been accomplished (other than lots of snuggling and sniffling, and some crying on his part), I figured I should go ahead and just share the photos of our finished chairs.
Because they are awesome, and you are awesome for reading, and thus, you deserve some pretty pictures of some awesome chairs.
Right now, we have three white ones on the long side of the table with the two blue captains chairs on the end.
The blue ones are my favorites, even though they were the hardest to finish. That’s the detailed post we’re still working on writing.
I think the fabric we chose ended up being perfect. It’s light, subtle, but also a little fun. And pretty without being overly “floral” or ultra feminine.
Of course, if we want a little more color around the table, we can use the green chairs.
Or a mixture of white and green. We could even use just white and green, or all white, without the blue ones.
We can fit four chairs on that side if we were having a really big dinner, which means we could do four white chairs, or two white and two green.
Can you tell I like the combination of chairs and all the options we have? As a reminder, this is what it looked like before we did the chairs, and the entire kitchen. Ugh, remember those orange floors? Yikes. And my style has evolved a lot since the pale yellow walls…
This room has come a long way.
Going back ever farther, it looked like this when we bought the place. Still nice, but I like it better now.
To say I’m pleased with this project is an understatement, for sure. It’s one thing to have them finished and around the table where we can use them, which is great. But, it’s also great to have them out of the garage.
Wyatt is especially pleased with that part, even though he hasn’t a fan of this project. (He likes the finished result, though.) I don’t think either of us could have taken another winter of trying to squeeze both cars in there before a snow storm and having to stack chairs up in the freezing cold.
Now, imagine three pendent lights over the table and some sort of big art of the wall, and then this room will be done. If I squint my eyes, I can see it, sort of.
Can you? If you can see it, what does the art look like? I’m still drawing a big blank there…
UPDATE: Here is the tutorial on the chairs, and how we reupholstered them, here. And, click here for the lighting we choose for over the table…and here for our giant (cheap!) art installation on that wall! Woohoo for a finished room!
