Yesterday I showed you my dining room table and chairs all newly painted and redone. But I left you with a promise to show you my new host (aka arm) chairs.
So why am I finally getting host chairs after all these years? WELL, I've been thinking of the holidays, I'm tired of pulling out the metal folding chairs, and since my children are grown, someday they just might bring someone home with them. ;o)
So, I went on the hunt for chairs. First, I thought new. I looked at At Home, then Pier One, then World Market. Nothing that fit my style or ideas.
Then Friday, I went to my favorite consignment store and found two of these. Hmm, nice and sturdy, the price was right (both were cheaper than one new one!) and I know with paint and new fabric they will blend with my other ones. Ok, SOLD!! I loaded them up and brought them home.
Then paint them with my same DIY chalk paint, followed by wax. Recover the seats with some Waverly fabric I found at Wal-Mart - $6.44 a yard! Crazy, right?
And here they are! They turned out so pretty!
Of course, I had to dress my "new" table for Autumn - starting with a Fall runner, then a glass cake stand in the middle, some gourds and mini pumpkins, and a leaf garland along the middle.
I set the table with my woodland chargers, red dinner plates, with the leaf salad plate on top.
