1. LOVE the color of the chairs. You had me thinking is was going to be bold lime or something like it, but no. It’s a very nice shade of green.

    Maybe you could sew some kind of contrasting fabric onto the covers so that you like it a little better. If the pink makes you happy, you have to use it. After all, you spend an inordinate amount of your life in that room; you might as well get visual joy out of it!

    If I could employ half of your creative abilities in my home, it would be a different place. But alas– I just had to have a nice little Martha Stewart for a best friend! (And that was meant in the nicest Martha sense of the word!)

  2. Hmmm. I hadn’t thought of that. I guess I’ll have to look at it over the next week or so and see if any sort of inspiration hits.

    I’m still just bummed that all the “fun” has been sucked out of my chairs.

    Tragedy? no. Visually less appealing than I would like? Yeah.

    And you ARE creative — your house is beautiful! It’s got that tasteful, classic elegance that will never look dated. I’ve got lime green, bright yellow, and hot pink in MY kitchen. Go figure.

    Still, I can’t wait to sit at your kitchen and go over fun house decorating magazines!

  3. Stencil a few hot-pink roses with varying shades of green leaves along the uppermost bar of the chair back to tie the seat covers in, et voila!

    (My mom would have done that. Me, personally–no. I’ve never met a craft I couldn’t utterly fail at.)


  4. See? I’m glad I posted this, ’cause y’all are coming up with some good ideas, which is giving me some hope!

    Thank you, Erin!


    I just need to figure out how to carry it off, because the table is stenciled, and the hutch behind it is as well, and if I goof up and overdo the chairs, people will wonder what my obsession is with the ivy motif…*grin*

    I promise to keep everyone posted on the status of my chairs… *grin*

  5. I like it – although, I am of an ‘eclectic’mind-set! The stecil suggestion sounds good, though!

    Remember: with every pregnant idea, comes new birth.

    This may become an evolution of sorts, that will end up better than when begun!
