I finally got around to painting the set of 6 chairs that I picked up last fall.
Although they looked good in my dining room, the four side chairs have been sold.
To be totally honest, the backs of these chairs while beautiful, are not that comfortable to sit at for any length of time.
The two side chairs received an update with white paint and I made some seats in green with blue piping.
The previously cherry, crappy stained credenza received an update by removing the drawers and adding a shelf and taking out the front cross bar. I picked this up over a year ago and it had a coffee table and side table with it. For only $55 I thought it was alright and I gave away the side table and coffee table. The drawers were dove tailed and I wondered why crappy pressboard/mdf furniture would have that? Turns out the entire piece is solid wood, which I found when I started sanding out the few nicks that were on the top.
This is the only photo I have of it in it’s previous state
Now it’s blue and I think I made a mistake. I guess I could strip the paint off and stain it to a nicer colour. Oh well.
I’m not even sure I like the chairs. Maybe once the wall is painted and the flooring is changed, I may change my mind. Lesson is that not everything needs to be changed.
