We have been super busy in our dining room and only one major project stands between us and the AFTER pictures. Planned to have it done on Sunday, but Ryan and I found our DIY limitations, so we're moving on to Plan B (and Plan C, if we have to!). In the meanwhile, we've tackled the icky chair problem. The result:
After looking for hours on Craigslist and seeing only frumpy vintage chairs that would need repainting anyway, we opted to paint the ones we had. Now, I would have preferred to buy all new upholstered linen chairs, but since our budget is blink-and-you'll-miss-it tiny, we worked with what we had. They aren't super comfortable, but at least they aren't ugly yellowing stain anymore! Basic no-brainer upgrade (although it wasn't simple or easy - do you see all those spindles?). They make the whole room look fresh and bright. Love it!
So bear with us as the final reveal is postponed again - it's probably killing me more than you! So ready for this room to be finished and finally all put together.
