I was so inspired by the BHG.com photo I showed you last week (below) that I decided to recover my dining room chairs in a blue toile! It took me a few hours to get used to the new look but now I love it! I found the fabric online, 3-3/4 yards for $24 with free shipping so it was a fairly good deal. I still have fabric left over too. Below is the inspiration photo.
Now (and this may come as a shock to some of you) I'm considering stripping the paint off the table top and staining it like the photo above (just the top, not the legs). I think it might look better. What do you think? Let me know... I've set up a poll at the bottom of this post.
I think the toile goes so much better with everything else downstairs.
