And two more chairs started.
The first 2 painted chairs got their second coat of paint today. I also did a first coat on 2 more chairs.
I’ll need at least one more coat on them before they pass the paint phase.
I brought them inside the house after they dried. You can see the 2 chairs don’t have seats on them.
The current seats are in the garage since I am going to rebuild them with plywood before the fabric phase.
On one of my chairs, I mixed some of my teal paint with my door color paint (Wrought Iron) to give an accent color – mimicking how it originally looked.
A better look at the slight contrast.
I’m hoping the last 2 chairs will enter paint phase next weekend. If not, I’ll be getting the plywood cut for new seats.
I got these cool chairs a few years ago –
They had a really cool pattern and were somewhat comfy.
Fast forward to today, they’re not as comfy – you can feel the springs on the bottom. I shouldn’t have bought them online without sitting on them first.
Add to that, the kitties have torn up the fabric. The thought of reupholstering did come to mind but I’m not quite sure about the spring in the bottom cushion thing – it’s weird.
Since these chairs won’t last, I am going to slowly change them out and go the mismatched chair route. It will be less stressful than having to replace all 6 chairs at once AND I get to find cool chairs to mix and match.
I just wish I had thought of that earlier on in the game. The only thing I need to do is make sure the chairs are in proportion to the table.
I changed the ceiling color over the weekend from Ceiling White (Benjamin Moore) to a blend of approximately 2 parts of the white to 1 part of Dolphin.
It looked a bit dark when I first started to paint it but once I got the whole ceiling done it was less subtle. It’s now a softer color which works in the dining room.
