The Chairs

This cracked me up: I was on craigslist last night and found these chairs, a set of 3 for $75.  They are exactly like the chair I just painted orange, except this seller said she just painted them white and covered the seats in pink toile.  Hilarious!


Then Stephanie had me check out a cool project on and I got sucked in to the before and after section where I noticed a definite painted chair craze going on.  Here are a couple that made me feel happy (plus I seriously own the exact vintage oak farm chair on the right and now I am thinking, hmmmm…)


Robin sent me these pics of her dining table (recently painted) and the two chair covers she made, but only two because she wants to exercise her right of decorative freedom!


Chairs are suddenly everywhere and they are all begging to be orange, I am sure of it.

Hope you’re in a comfy one!…Jeanie

  1. Robin-your chairs are the exact ones that actually went with my Ethan Allen dining table. I sold them in a garage sale so I could collect old oak farmhouse chairs from the 30s and 40s. My table is that trestle-style that Pottery Barn re-introduced a few years ago to great acclaim.

  2. I love that painted farm chair, but I don’t think I could do that to my new ones….not yet at least;o)
    I will cover them though!

  5. With havin so much written content do you ever
    run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored

    suppose you typed a catchier title? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog,
    but what if you added something that grabbed people’s attention? I
    mean The Chairs | Jeanie Rhoades // Thought Collage is a little
    vanilla. You should look at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create news titles to grab viewers to click.

    got to say. In my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.
