Being green, it limits what I can do with the room that it's in, and taxes my very limited decorating skills. I stared at it long and hard this morning and pondered on a solution. They are dinged and chipped anyway, so ...
The seat of the chairs are a brown/cherry color and they're just fine, but I can paint the legs and back of the chairs and the legs of the table and pull it all together. I don't think I'll attempt to paint the top of the table because it's rubbery stuff between the tiles and I'm not sure how that would work, but keeping it covered will solve that little problem.
Now that that's decided, what color?
I thought about white, but I don't think it would look well with the seat color. Thought about country white/cream, but not sure how that would look with the white bead-board I plan on putting on the lower portion of that wall.
I had a can of black spray paint on hand so took one of the chairs to the garage and painted two legs so I could see the contrast next to the seat. It's a flat finish and I'll want something with a bit of gloss to it, but I think the color will be great. I might even consider distressing them.
Cementing the idea is the fact that my new desk on the other side of that large room is a cherry finish with black accents. Perfect!
(This is the pic from the box - mine is almost this neat)
This should be a fairly simple project even for me, so for the cost of a couple cans of spray paint, I'll have a whole new look. Whatdya think?
