I would take these in any color, chippy or freshly painted. New or old.
I don't discriminate against Tolix Chairs. We are a Tolix freindly house!
If you find yourself with a set of these and decide to let them go-please contact me!!!!!!!
With that being said.......
Now back to reality-ville! When we moved in to our new house, I lacked a dining table. Mr. TSL and I were attempting to redo one, when we took a break from the redo to find that termites had gotten the top of the table and it had warped. So sad :( After that debacle, I got the green light to buy a new table. Should have just looked on Craigslist-Craig and his List are AWESOME for finding deals! But, I bought a new new one! I love it, it's planked and dark wood, it has a leaf and is awesome, but the dining chairs are a mis-mash of what we've got.
As I was
I thought, self, that's a cute idea for you to
Her dining set originally looked like this:
To Craigslist I went and started looking! I found an antique set for $75! The chairs need some gluing and clamping and sanding and stripping. I'm currently working on that. The table has almost the same leggy pieces that Layla's has underneath. Someone-I'm sure it was cool at the time-painted the set yellow with no primer and then glazed or stained over the top of it. It looks awful and is all chippy-and not in a good way.
I plan to paint them green and cover the seat with a drop cloth and add some super cute numbers to the seat with fabric paint. Like these:
This weekend we are going to: (my mom, dad, Mr. TSL and I)
1. Redo the front bathroom
a. demo-it's small won't take to long
b. tile the floor
c. install a new white toilet-currently it's almond
d. install the new vanity
e. hang the mirror
d. install a new light
2. Paint the super scary, very vaulted, I'm not getting on the freakin' ladder, stairwell.
Mom is actually doing most of this-I am way to afraid to do this.
If she didn't do it-it would never ever ever get painted!!
3. Painting Morgan and Hayley's room pink :)
Then moving them in together and Audrey up into Morgan's room, so she is out of ours and I can sleep!!
-Make your life beautiful!
