Now that all of my house projects are finished I have been thinking about working on some furniture projects.
One of them being my breakfast table. It has been on my list to paint black which is very popular here in Charlotte. I really would prefer to have a round table, but until I find one I will have to live with the one I have. I would also like to either paint the chandelier and change the little shades or replace it with a drum shade.
I haven't ever liked the design in the shield back of my chairs and thought it should be covered it with fabric... but wasn't sure what color or pattern.
Then, Tuesday night while perusing Craiglslist I found an ad for some Ralph Lauren chairs.
They were listed at $900 and said they were $3,600 retail!!
I love the black and white fabric with the black frame. I also love the chartreuse seat, but not sure how I will handle the seat on mine. I'm thinking of doing them in green, but as a tied on pad.
The design of the shield back is so interesting. It sure would be nice to have these chairs ... if only they'd take $200!
Here's a cute drum shade.
It is a white shade with black ribbon on it.
I'd have to find one cheap, though - or I could make one. Hmmm, so much to think about.
Hope you are having a good week so far!
