Kitchen Chairs! - before & after
For a long time now I have been wanting to paint my kitchen chairs. I have a lot of black accents in my kitchen and that is the color I wanted. I have a black fridge and the cookstove is black also. I know it sounds like a lot of black but it's a big room with a lot of wood and I knew it wouldn't be too overpowering.
The chairs have been with us a long time and have seen some serious wear and tear (ask me about the time hubby didn't tie them down while moving a load of our stuff...on the highway! Amazingly, the ones that got dumped only suffered some skid marks...oh I am so thankful I wasn't there!.....)
My best "before" shot, with the chairs in the background. Sorry it is blurry. Try to ignore the cat in the bowl. He's old and likes to be near the warm stove.
My poor old chairs kicked out onto the back step.
I nagged Handy Hubby to let me just spray paint the chairs but he said no, he wanted to use Benjamin Moore with his airless sprayer. So mostly it's been me complaining about the weather not being nice enough yet.
On Easter weekend, Saturday morning was surprisingly warm so while the girls and I went off to the church for the food blessing, the guys did the chairs. Yay! I was so excited! Except the bad news was that the not-too-pretty stackable spare chairs in the basement would have to be used for our Easter dinner.
But it worked out all right. We made do.
Here are some of the chairs in the driveway with their first new coat on...
Here's the sprayer...and I am grateful I didn't have to paint.
I had the barstools for the island done too. They weren't really even the same color as the island anyway. Try to ignore the (same) cat in the foreground, he's old and likes to sit on this stool to watch me cook.
And here's how they look around the table now!!!
I love it!!!
