Not So Random Pairings

Sometimes you have things that wouldn't necessarily go together,

but you can make them pair up wonderfully with a little work.







I have a chair collection in the garage that has been growing exponentially.







Dan doesn't like me to pick up too many chairs because they can be hard to store

-and take up a lot of space-

until you find a use for them.








So, I finally was able to get a grouping of them together and make them work collectively.

Enter a little table with a leaf.







And here is my little set...







A matching bath in turqouise paint with a mocha glaze on the chairs

-and a contrasting white table-

helped to pull this little country folk kitchen together.





   

And now my random pieces

have been pieced together.

That turned out great- you just have to have the patience to wait for the right piece to come along and pull it things all together. Good job! xo Diana

It looks great! I love the chair color. And white for the table really makes the whole set pop. I know what you mean about chairs. I have them piled to the ceiling in our extra bedroom. :)

Andrea,
Wow - you are seriously talented! From this fabulous set of painted chairs to your union jack bed and dresser - love it all! And then you throw chickens into the mix - could you be any cooler? From one thrift shop diva to another - great!

You always seem to take imperfect things and make them look so special. Love the turqoise color. Happy 4th of July, my friend. Have a wonderful day with your family.

I am so glad you commented on Ms. Vanity. You have wonderful projects on here. I would love if you would link one up to my Rustic Restorations Weekend Linky party that starts Thursday evening. I love the different chairs! That table looked so boring, but you made it lovely! I did this same idea in our bedroom, because we have mix-match furniture :) Now it works! I am your newest follower:)

Your table and chairs are perfect together. Love how the turquoise paint brought them all together perfectly around your table.

Love those colors together! Makes me want to sit down with a glass of lemonade and gossip! Thanks for stopping by. I did check out her campaign dresser. would you believe I have that exact same color in my garage? I was actually considering using that color...MS Plumage. I just might try it out! Thanks!
