A few new chairs

Last week I shared with you how I removed a water stain from my teak tabletop, and I realized I never showed you our new kitchen chairs.  We have had these for almost a year now, so I guess they are not really new to us but new to you.  :)

Here's the dining area with our white, Napoleon chairs.

And now.

There are actually four chairs, but I am using one of the chairs in my sewing room.  They have held up incredibly well.  They are lightweight, but not so light that you can easily damage them.   I am so happy we made the switch to metal chairs.  It was a nightmare wiping down white wood chairs all day long.  The only disadvantage to our chairs is winter time brings a chill to the seats when you first sit in them.  It goes away rather quickly, but you are greeted with a cool seat.  I'm sure some fur from IKEA or cushions would remedy that.  

I would love to add a rug like this West Elm one to the space.  I think one could easily DIY a similar version, but if this rug ever goes on clearance, I am snatching it up in a heartbeat.

And since I am on the topic of let's pretend, I would also love to add a piece of art to the right side of the window.  The pictures that were once there had to come down.  When Owen was younger, he had a habit of slamming our back door, and the vibrations would knock down our frames.  Now that he is a little older, I may be able to hang something there on the right.

Or this.


The pendant light will be leaving our home later this week too, but that's for another day.  :)  It's the Finley pendant lamp from Crate and Barrel, and I highly recommend it!

    Olivia, I love those chairs! such a difference!
    we are thinking about getting those for our balcony-deck-thing... maybe in one or two lightyears ahead we'll be enjoying our 5 o'clock beer on those chairs... looking forward to that!

  2. Love that little table and those chairs are Percy with it! I love the mix of wood and industrial! Glad I came across your blog!:)

  3. Nice chairs – they don’t even look a year old. Where did you get those? They look cool enough to sit on, so yeah, you might need a cushion for the winter. Nonetheless, that’s a great change. Jeremy @ ChiavarichAirsOfMichigan.com =)
