The search for furniture for our new house has been a slow process. We've decided to mostly stick with whatever we have for now and save money for stuff we really like, even if that means using our old kitchen table as a desk for the time being. One thing we needed right away was dining room chairs and luckily we managed to snag these for free from some very nice people looking to get rid of some furniture.
I'm absolutely in love with the shape, but not in love at all with the fabric. Hey, they were free so I can't really complain. The chairs also go beautifully (sort of) with our vintage teak dining table... more on that in a later post.
My task now is to recover these chairs with a slightly less 'granny' fabric, but that's proving more difficult than I thought because there's too many great prints to choose from! Since we don't really have any other furniture I can pretty much go with whatever colours I want, so I've managed to narrow it down to a pattern in either blue, black or green. I chose blue and black because it's dark enough hide any potential stains and is easy to decorate around later, and I chose green because I think it would look nice with the slightly reddish tone of the wood.
What do you think? I'm leaning towards the triangles in the very first circle but late last night while I was browsing fabric I got this crazy idea that I wanted a skull print. I went to bed thinking I had it figured out. In the light of day, that idea is looking a little crazy... or is it? Ack! There's too many choices! This may come down to me closing my eyes and pointing at the screen.
