I love my dining room "set". I got it several years ago..paid $15 for the table, and $5 for each chair at Goodwill. They weren't looking very pretty when I got them, but I saw the potential. A little paint and some appliques and it is perfect for us.
Over the last few years I have thought I want to change it up a little. I see on pinterest where some people do their chairs a different color and a white table. I like that. But about a year ago I tried that and I didn't like it, the colors were too much, so back to white they went.
Here is my new attempt. This time I went with very very light pastel colors. One chair is pink, one lavender, one blue, and one green. In photos you can hardly tell there is any color...but any real life it is noticeable.
It looks even prettier with my ruffled table cloth.
The plan is to make a ruffled slip cover for each chair seat in the color of the chair.
I think these chairs were such a deal for $5! I love cane back.
Making the covers for the chairs will be fun and I hope turns out looking "quilt like". Gives me a chance to use all the beautiful fabrics that are out there lately.
I took some pictures at night in hopes the color would show in pictures better...but it is hard to capture in photos.
I like this picture Janae took on her phone and posted on Facebook last night. Her little Bella is licking her lips looking at Wyatts dinner. This is real life--notice how Wyatt pushes the tablecloth up so he doesn't get anything on it. I have good kids! Obviously my Grand-dogs think they should be able to sit at the table too.
I can't wait to get started on the slipcovers!
Thanks for visiting!
