I'm rolling with the green. There are some things that we can do in this apartment (like build a new coffee table) and somethings that we can't (like build a new dining table). I've got a plan for what I would like our new one to look like, but with the small space we have, it's impractical for now. So instead I am throwing a table cloth over our current one and repainting and recovering our dining chairs to bring a bit more life into them. The plan is to eventually sell the old table and save the redone chairs.
To show you the progression, I took a photo of three of our chairs in all of their states. The far left is what we had in Maryland. The recovered blue is what we have had for the last year or so. And the right is the redo.
Much like the wall painting, this is turning into a much larger project than anticipated. Step one is to remove the cushioned seat. Step two is to sand the wood as much as possible. Step three is two coats of primer. Step four is THREE coats of paint. Step five is recover and reattach the cushion.
And you might notice... only one chair is shown. Yes, I have three more to do. But at the moment, time is free and new chairs are not. So on we go. And the best news is : I love them.
DETAILS : Paint is Behr Thyme Green in semi-gloss. Fabric is this home decor pattern that I ordered online for half off.
