Happy Thursday! Hope you all have had a great week so far! I survived my first R.I.P.P.E.D. class at the gym and really enjoyed it, as much as one can enjoy exercise I suppose. I could have done with less push-ups though. 🙂 After class I spent the afternoon working on the chairs I am about to share. And finally, when the kids got off the bus we visited some friends who recently welcomed a bunch of new babies into their family….
Aren’t they all the sweetest? My kids were in heaven petting these little guys! And their little “baaaas” are the cutest! Anyhow, I just had to share these pictures because you can’t look at a lamb and not melt just a little.
Yesterday I shared a cool Duck Egg console piece with you and also told you that I was working on some dining chairs in the same color.
Here is what the looked like when I purchased them,,,
I gave them two coats of Duck Egg chalk paint, used my wet rag distressing method, and finished them with a clear wax. I recovered the seats in burlap. And here is what they look like now…
Now…. I am going to be honest. I painted them this color because I thought I may want to keep them to bring some more aqua into the dining room. Also, I liked their scale better than my current chairs. (My current chairs were given to me by a friend and were meant to be used until I found “The chairs”. I had to replace the modern chairs I had that Chris couldn’t stand.) As a reminder, here is what the chairs look like in my dining room….
Now, I switched them out for the photo shoot and I think I am going to keep these new ones…. what say you?
I love how they tie in the aqua from the front door, now that it was recently painted.
These also have higher backs and I think the scale better suits our table.
So, what do you think? Which chairs would you keep??? Would you forget about the chairs, and just go snuggle a lamb?
Hi, I am an adorable lamb and I love you.
