My new chairs


My latest craigers purchase. These Ethan Allan chairs were custom made for the lady I bought them from, pristine blue leather and dark cherry wood. I thought the wood was way too dark and gave them a dentist office feel, I wish I felt like sanding them down, but alas not to be. Instead, behold two layers of primer, three layers of paint and my dining room is getting cozier by the day.


Oh, and the price? $340 for the pair, suweet. They are nine years old, but look new. I kept all the clutter in the photo for you, aren't I nice. The pendant we have not hung yet, in almost a year, the metro shelf I am thinking of slip covering...the dog pee clean up spray...your welcome.



Also I got a pair of those William Sonoma silk zig zag pillows (original tags still say 88 smackers a piece,) for 20 on ebay. I would like a better table for between them, larger and higher.

  5. blue chairs against wooden floors. perfect.

    I'm actually loving that shelving unit as it is (and it also looks like I could easily put it together myself. I'm crap at diy ;)

    I also need to cosy up my house (moved in december) as it's still pretty bare, but hey. one step at a time... ;)

  9. Oh my goodness! I was just looking at some blue chairs with white trim and was thinking that that's what I may do with two wooden chairs I have. Looking at these really makes me want to do it. And what a deal. Love the pillows with them too. :)

  13. I can imagine these chairs with dark cherry wood. And while I think they must’ve looked great that way, I think painting them white will have made them look even better! Plus, the white color matches the walls and the floors better than the dark wood would have.
