The next set of chairs came from Laurel (again) although I think they started with Mom who got them at a thrift store. I actually really like the retro style of these chairs, but the green vinyl was hopelessly dirty, and no matter how much I scrubbed, they wouldn't come completely clean. I ended up painting them white, of course, then I recovered the seat and made a little slip for the top with a dainty ruffle to add a little detail.I found the fabric a while ago, and loved it, so though I had no idea what to do with it, I bought a couple of yards and tucked it away. I'm glad it found a purpose. A zipper hidden along the cording on the edge helped make a tight cover, yet removable for washing. I have one chair at my little computer desk, the other is looking for a home. The great thing about these chairs is I can put them all around my office table (if you remember my office post here) and turn it back into a dining table for company.
Now I have a question for all you smart ladies. You see the cute little table I have my computer on? (yes, another hand-me-down) I love the original turquoise color, but the paint job has definitely seen better days. Should I repaint it. NOT white, but some other fun/funky color (What?) or should I keep it turquoise? Please let me know what you think.
