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.
Look! I draw!
This is my quick sketch of my living room plan. (Post popcorn)
Drawing is definitely not to scale. 😉

Love that ceiling texture. Makes me want to forgo scraping my vaulted ceiling and just do something like this.
Right now, Emser Strands Olive is the top choice for floor tiles. I’m looking at 12’x24’ ones for that modern, cleaner look.
I need to check the local Daltile showroom though just to eliminate their choices. Some of their stuff is made in Oklahoma so it would be nice to stay local.
For the spare bath wall tile, I’ve got some ideas when I was at the Emser showroom yesterday but they’re natural stone and unless I can get them reclaimed, I really don’t want newly quarried stuff (trying to be as earth friendly as I can). I’ll check the re-Store to see what they have as well.
Ideally, I’d like to get rectangular tiles (like subway ones) but a more modern palette or texture just in keeping with the modern, yet retro look I like.
Reclaimed Wood Idea
I love this idea of using old, reclaimed wood and adding it to a wall. I’d love to do that to this piece because it is just so blah. Plus, I couldn’t have to worry about baseboards either :).
Now I REALLY need a laser miter saw and a nail gun.
(oh, don’t mind the cat toys on the floor.)
