We have had our kitchen table and chairs for almost 6 years now. Two of the chairs were saved out of a dumpster but they serve their purpose well. The things ppl throw out that are perfectly good humf. Anyway, with our impending move and new house I have had a few pre-moving projects in mind. The Home and Garden channel has been almost a constant watch for us the last two months. I got the idea to paint our table and chairs a dark green that will bring down the big kitchen we will have. My "theme" for the kitchen is country and apples. I had org. picked a dark dark green called Jasper on the color deck but Josh insisted it was too dark and would look almost black on the table. Who am I to argue with a professional? So we looked over the color deck together and compromised on a dark green that is still bright. (Josh and I have different ideas and visions apparently and tastes lol) So we settled on the color that adorns the table now.. LUCKY GREEN! NO seriously that is it's name on the color deck. I think red chair cushions and apples in a clear bowel will complement this green, even though it is not org. what I had planned. It will really pop in our new breakfast area.
Before you get ideas of painting your own table and chairs let me warn you.. it is alot of work!!! I thought it would be a simple family project of slapping on some paint but nooooooooo... you have to sand every thing down first (my shoulders are still sore). And then it has to be primed.. and then if you can get the spray gun out of your husband's hand then you can put the color on lol. Do it on a non windy day too.. or else you will be picking leaves and bugs off your paint job. lol But Lori is right.. when families work on home projects together it keeps them close and I look forward to doing more of these things for our new home with Josh and the kids.
Next project.. fitting Josh's bedroom armoire to be a TV stand for the living room.
One more week till we close.. I better get packing!
