So I got myself some new (to me) chairs-6 to be exact-which I wanted, (actually it was 8), but that my friends is hard to find, especially ones you like & if you're on a budget like me. I searched high and low for the right style, shape, height & comfort level in a set and finally found them for a STEAL! I find Craigslist can either be your worst enemy or your best friend and luckily this time, we're pals. Here's a pic of the chairs:
Now the question is, should I paint them or not? There are so many options with these that I had to put together an idea board so I could narrow it down, but the possibilities are almost endless AND I happen to like them all which does NOT help! See what I mean?
I realize I have more upholstery on mine, and they are not Chinese Chippendale Chairs, but you get the idea. I had every intention of painting them, so why am I so indecisive now? Do I like the natural look? Not sure. I want the bistro look, but I'm certainly not afraid of colour, so that is an option. I am definitely changing the upholstery, because well let's face it...it's seen better days and really isn't my style anyway. What is my style you ask? For those that know me, you guessed right-call it what you like-rustic, eclectic, scandinavian, with a bit of industrial. Phew! Is this even a style? Well it's mine, but I need a bit of advice now, so I am reaching out to you, my fellow bloggers, readers and friends alike...what do you think I should do? Paint? If so, what colour? No paint? Upholstery suggestions? Geometric, stripes, one colour, two colours? ACK! My walls are white, dining table is a MCM darker teak. HELP!
