This is my new kitchen table! While I liked the shape of my octagon one, the paint finish was impossible to keep clean and crumbs got stuck in the cracks. I considered filling it in with wood filler and putting a sealant on the top...but that just sounded like a lot of work :) So instead I bought this:
A couple of weeks ago I bought chairs off of Craig's that look almost exactly like these:

Except they are all black, dirty, and in bad need of some TLC. I love them!
I just need to decide what color to paint the frames. Silver, like above.
White with a fun pop of color for the cushion.

Yellow could be fun.

Leave them black?

Or maybe paint them blue.

Or even red.

What do you think?


  1. How fun! I have a round dining table too that I am in the process of refinishing... wood on top and painting the bottom white. And I'm half way through painting my dining chairs YELLOW! I love all of the above options... I had a hard time settling on yellow, but so far I LOVE them. They made the little dining area look so happy. :) Can't wait to see what you decide.

  2. i have drooled and drooled over the room with the blue chairs and big mirror.... so that is my vote, but the other colors could be so fun, too! what is your gut telling you?

  3. How to choose?!? ANY colour would be fabulous.
