I am still talking about my dining room. Imagine that.
A few weeks ago we found and purchased 4 dining room chairs. Chairs that were exactly what I wanted, well, they will be once I decide what fabric I want and recover them. This led to my continued CL search for the perfect head chairs to pair with them. I was thinking simple parsons chairs, but still not entirely sure.
Saturday night I was searching CL right before I went to bed and came across 6 parsons chairs with slipcovers for $60! Just wait, it gets better. I looked at the picture again and realize that the dining room is very familiar. I have been in this dining room, I know the person selling the chairs. I checked the cell # with the one in my phone just to be sure, and sure enough, it was the same person. It was late so I sent her a FB message and then a text first thing Sunday morning. As soon as church was over on Sunday I went to pick them up. (Just in time for my sister's birthday lunch at my house.)
The chairs are a little rough and need some attention, but the are very sturdy and comfortable. And I only paid $60 for all 6 of them.
I now have options for my dining room. I'm actually a little overwhelmed. Which chairs do I like where? Do I recover the parsons chairs, alter (die, paint) the existing slipcovers, do I make new slipcovers, and what about the other chairs? Do I want the same fabric on all of the chairs, or do I just make them coordinate? Do I still paint the table? Do I really want to paint the table white or should I pick a different color?
I told you I was a little overwhelmed. At this point the only thing I know about the dining room is that the curtains, wall color, and chandelier are staying as is. The rest, well, I guess we will see.
