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 designspongeonline.com 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

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.
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!
Speaking of chairs, you and dad need some new kitchen ones desperately!
