I had to borrow a table for the weekend. And use my metal fold up chairs! ok with me!
So later I will post pics, and everyone can give me hints how to change the plain Jane into
However I need to know more about Annie Sloan paints. Seems a little goes a long way, well, I dont have that much to paint to use so much of one color. Do you know of a way to change colors on
Should I start a new thread?
As for the table & chairs, I think they're great! Are you sure you want to paint them? Maybe just paint the base of the table- I love a painted base with a stained top. I'm thinking a sample pot would be plenty just for the base. Robyn Story Designs sells the samples, http://shop.robynstorydesigns.com/Chalk-Pain....
So in your opinion, does painting furniture a color make a room look more country?I do not want country, but i want lively fun pieces. My friend has painted a couple of pieces in her living room and it still looks "victorian interesting". But I CAN"T SEE it here. Maybe I can send you some pics of my whole room and you can help me get out of my rut?
Ok, that said, how about the table base white, paint the chairs blue like you wanted, except for the seats. Make sure whatever blue you choose has a grey tone- blue is really hard to get right- it either comes out too bright or too baby blue. Refinish the table top and chair seats in a darker
If you don't want country, ya gots to get rid of the blue plaid chair cushions. :) Accessories will determine country or not also.
Another possibility is to change out two of the chairs to get an eclectic mix.
Will it still have a country look if I change the cushions? Yes, I think hubs wouild like a dark stained top, and I would also. thanks! Something to think about!
and I am on a chair hunt, someday! haha
I would love some upholstered chairs for comfort, and then.....some wheels on them! good gravy!
I have also seen chair covers at BBBeyond..how would that work?
Or this one:
They're both outdoor cushions, but I love the colors, and I actually like using outdoor fabrics inside- usually much easier to keep clean:You could pick any of the colors from either cushion to paint your chairs. Just check the measurements to be sure they''ll work. Since I don't know what style or look you're going for, I'm kinda' shooting in the dark there, so those may be totally off, but they definitely get you away from the country look. :)
As for the projects, I think I would at least have your fabric in hand before painting. It's much harder to find fabric to match paint than it is to match paint to your fabric. Believe me, I did it backwards over and over in this house, and it's no fun. ;\'
