The new kitchen look!

I've been dying to paint my kitchen set-
love the round table-
love the look of the chairs-
(well, not really but...)
 just not their weight-
-way too heavy-
So, as I've shown you before,
I've been scoring some great chairs at Club GW-

I was going to paint them white
 because the table blended into the floor
which also blended into the chairs-
one big blending-

I painted the table-2 coats worth
each chair also got 2-

when I was done-
I realized it wasn't doing it for me-

My whole plan changed
today I repainted the table
 and six chairs
 the same color as the hutch
No more blah-


Have you ever made a mistake with color
and been so bummed
 because of the time you ( wasted) spent?

The chairs from Club GW-

But, I'm a happy camper now!
The fabric I recovered the chairs with,
 match the trim on the curtains-

Love the new color-
it really perks up the space
perks me up too!
The best laid plans don't always pan out
but, I must say in this case-
love the new found plan!!

Take care, gotta fly - Claire

  7. hi claire,love the look...and your fabric choice... looks beautiful with the red table & chairs...

  8. Yes that's recently happened to me when I hastily painted my nightstands white and then months later wanted them to be gray. Spent time stripping them, sanding and repainting. I commend you for your perseverance.

  9. Beautiful color..Love it. Well worth the extra time spent repainting.


  10. Personally, when I first saw it, I liked the table white. Until...I saw the final color you settled on. Now I LOVE it!!! I can see why it perks you up, Claire. Your whole dining spot looks so charming now. ;)

  18. Your table and chairs add a lot of color to your dining area. It is a nice change from all the black and white.

    I have med. blue in my kitchen and was debating on going black because I thought it was more "in" than the blue. Not sure at this point...

    Thanks for sharing this at my party!

  19. Hi Claire, you did an absolutely stunning job with the table and chairs and I love how you matched the seats with the curtains. Great job. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  20. Love the paint job! I have a round farmers table, maple on top, worn, and white legs. I just bought 4 old maple Hitchcock chairs with gold and greenish-brown stenciling. What do you think about painting the whole table antique gold??? Thanks Claire!

  21. Looks great! I love having red in my kitchen.

  22. Love the color! I wouldn't think that you could go wrong with white, but the coral/pink color is so much better. Good for you for going for it!


Thanks for your kind comments-love to hear from you!
