As you'll recall, this summer I found a screamin' deal on a set of faux bamboo chairs with a matching dining table.
I've been putting off deciding what to do with them, because I want them to be absolutely perfect.
Well, this Sunday morning, the man-friend and I got started on the chair re-do project!
The original chairs at the Fort Worth Flea!
They were originally a natural wood finish with leopard upholstery.
I'm using the four matching dining chairs for the dining room and the hostess chair for a new desk chair.
For the dining chairs, I decided on a gloss navy wood with the cushion upholstery in Trina Turk for Schumacher Peacock in the "Pool" colorway.

My desk chair is my current challenge.
Originally, I had plans to paint it gloss black and use the fun pink and white fabric below.
Then, when I was looking at paint in the store, I laid my eyes on this pretty Ballet Slipper pink!
And, as a true pink lover, I just couldn't resist!
Now, I'm faced with the dilemma of what fabric to use for the cushion.
I could go all the way with my original dark pink and white choice....
Or a little more wild with an orange velvet pattern on flax linen.
I'm also loving these options.....
The next issue is, the rug I currently have in my dining room.
It's a very traditional oriental style.
Hand-me-down from Mom.
Sorry, But I can't stand oriental rugs.
I need something much more modern.
I need something to add a little punch under what I'm planning to use---which is the Ikea Docksta Table.
Which these folks have styled so well!
Thoughts? Questions? Concerns?
I need your help, readers!
