New chairs


Ben picked up some new kitchen chairs for us over the weekend. They are plywood (I'm a big fan of plywood) with metal legs in a lovely 'eau de nil' colour (as my instagram friends told me. Although I admit they are slightly more colourful in Instagram than they are in real life). They need a bit of a scrub up but they are luverly. 

I've seen some expensive new plywood/metal chairs around that I absolutely love, like these ones by Very good & Proper. But these were £20 each. Can't say fairer than that. Wondering whether to paint the legs different colours or leave them alone.

  2. Wow! They are just gorgeous!! I'd leave them just as they are... you can always do some 'sprucing' later if you feel the need. Living with something first has saved me from some bad decoration decisions in the past ;) Great find :) Kx

  3. Love the chairs. The colour of the legs (on Instagram) looks perfect. I'd leave them as they are. Or maybe paint them yellow?

  9. They're gorgeous, love the slightly gnarley grain too, or maybe that's just the instagram effect. Colour is perfect, keep it.

  15. Love them! And I think both ways they will be great, either in this lovely blue or in some new bright colors. But if you want to save yourself some work I think they're already very good like this!
