Remember the cute little Craigslist chairs I bought a few days ago?
Well, I asked what y’all thought about the idea of mixing and matching the chairs so that I could keep two of the new ones for myself. The mix and match idea seemed to go over pretty well (with a couple of exceptions), so I took my two chairs, along with two of the “new” chairs, over to John & Alice’s house to see what they look like.
Now of course, you have to look past all of the mismatched colors and the faux wood grain on the laminate table top. Imagine all of the chairs painted the same color, upholstered in the same fabric, the table base painted black, with a new real wood table top.
Can you picture it? Do you still think the mix and match will work? Or should I keep all four of the “new” chairs together.
I definitely have an opinion, but I’m curious to know what you think.
On a related topic, I was shocked to see how pretty the teal chairs looked in the room!
I do think that color (which is the color I used on my own kitchen cabinets) is a bit too teal for the room. I actually have a slightly different paint color that I’ll use on the chairs. But it was fun to be able to immediately see how painted chairs will look in the room.
I actually really liked the one with the dry brushing against the draperies and walls. And considering that I’m going to paint the table base black, I think this paint technique would work well on the chairs.
So back to my original question. What do you think of the mix and match chair situation?
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
