I have been squealing with delight for the past few days I can’t even SEE straight!!! You know when you’ve LITERALLY stumbled upon the most AMAZING thing ever, and if you’ve been searching for that perfect thing and nothing will do until you find it when you least expect it, and then BAM! It’s RIGHT THERE more amazing than you ever imagined? Well, that is the story of my kitchen dining set.
I had this REALLY great kitchen table and chairs (8 of them)… all SOLID as a rock, Bernhardt, like amazing quality, purchased brand new when I got married. And of course TIME passed, tastes changed, and I wanted a cleaner sleeker look, one that I liked the maintenance of. So fast forward last year, I stumbled upon my new table at a local consignment shop….
You can tell I’m a neutrals girl… I love to add splashes of color thru my accessories, but when it comes to some of these things like furniture, I love them clean and neutral and they seem to remain “classic” longer. Make sense?
My venetian glass chandelier that I love…. and you can see my walls have a blue/green color to them. My crown is almost a putty color.
So then to find the PERFECT chairs…. well…. I had shared with you lovies several ideas of chairs not long ago (HERE) that were inspirations of my dream chairs… a little more than I wanted to spend!
So then here I am bee-boppin around town with my kids as I came across a consignment shop, and it was like rays of WHITE LIGHT with angels singing!! … There before my eyes were my dream chairs. They need some new cushions, so here is what I put together…
There were only 6 so I need to have 2 head chairs made… The picture doesn’t do justice but HOLY SMOKES I had another “angels singing” moment the other day when I found the HEAD CHAIR fabric…. Brace yourself for this one people….
I call it STARDUST…. the picture doesn’t do it justice but… IT’S VINYL!! And it’s SPARKLY!!! Isn’t that INSANE??? Am I crazy for using this fabric? I’m IN LOVE beyond love with this!
The moral of the story is this… Don’t just BUY whatever just to BUY something. Hold off for what you’re REALLY looking for. You’ll KNOW it when you see it. Period. I knew RIGHT away and I couldn’t stop thinking about them when I found each of these pieces… the table… the chairs.. then the fabric.
Please chime in with your thoughts…. The pink “confetti” velvet will be the cushions on the Brass/Cane chairs… the “stardust” will be the entire arm chairs…. Love it? Hate it? I thought about flip flopping the fabrics, but then I thought for ease to clean? Or… should they ALL be the same?… Now, I’m kinda thinking so….
Thoughts? Chime in!!!
Oh…. and … on the subject of golden goodness… I can be taking lovely notes at my table on THESE or YOU can be… if you chime in to my giveaway….
Ok.. carry on…..
I love the pink for the brass and sparkle for the head! LOVE LOVE so fab!
