Oh, my. I seem to have a water theme in my dining room! I painted my walls in Sherwin Wiliams, Rainstorm (Post HERE) and have now added the vintage sideboard in General Finishes chalk style paint, Stillwater Blue (Post HERE). I am very happy with how the blues complement one another and also added my new rug (Post HERE) into the room. It is a perfect fit! The peonies just bloomed in my garden and I added them to my Mother’s Day roses – they smell heavenly!
e and gold vintage dining room chairs and am so happy to be done. This project took a lot longer than anticipated due to our snowstorm and having the kids home for a full week. Each chair has taken multiple coats of paint to cover and a lot of time was spent on the gold gilding. It was a time consuming project but now that I see the chairs together – wow. I really can’t wait to see them with the lighter colored fabric on the seats.

This week, I am working on these beautiful dining room chairs. My client wants her new home to feel a little lighter and brighter. She wishes to maintain her traditional style while adding a more modern touch. Painting these lovely chairs in a soft, creamy white will definitely do the trick! She is also having the chairs reupholstered and will choose the fabric as soon as I deliver one of the finished, painted chairs back to her. She really needs to see the finish before choosing the fabric. These chairs are about to be completely transformed!
