Happenings.

Good morning, and happy Monday (boo). 

Did you guys have a nice weekend? Our's was great, and packed with lots of family and socializing. I finished up last week with a few painting projects, and am headed out the door in a bit to work on starting a kitchen cabinet job. I have a few photos I snapped over the past few days I thought I'd share...

Here are our new kitchen stools, woo. I got them at Overstock. I thought they'd be more of a red-orange tomato-y color, but when they got here they were orange. I still really love them, though, and the orange actually matches the rug I bought last weekend for the dining area perfectly, so it all ties together magically and nicely. :)

I also got some more of the wire Bertoia lookalike chairs on Amazon. I painted them white, but I'm thinking i might paint them back black or dark gray again. I think I liked the contrast better before. What do you guys say?

I picked some gardenias yesterday and placed them on the table. It smells so good in there! 

I found those old bottles on the side of the road a long time ago... I still love them. 

We had family over last night for father's day. And look! We can fit more than 3 people in our house at one time! haha.

  3. I like them white, but I think black / dark grey would make a statement and would not be such an obvious choice. More industrial look. They would pop out the rug. And with that beautiful dark wooden table I would do them dark, definitely. :)



    PS I did mines black, so I maybe byassed... ;) http://decoraticablog.blogspot.com.es/2013/03/la-evolucion-de-mi-comedor-dining-nook.html

  5. I say that you keep them white for now and enjoy the light, bright feeling for summer. Once fall rolls around, you could paint them black or dark gray for a change. :)

  6. I was just wondering how you painted your Bertoia chairs... spray paint in a can or did you have them powder coated or something? Thx

    1. hey! i just spraypainted them with a can. i did it last time with mine (about two years ago), and it was fine, so i wasn't scared to do it again. i spray primed them first, then spray painted.
