Cottage Style Dining Room chairs

Loving these white cottage farmhouse style chairs that I found at a garage sale recently.


...and they were already painted!
Speaking of painting , the walls are needing a minor patch and re paint to cover up the previous picture hook holes.
The frame around the shutters also has to be sanded and painted.
Never-ending isn't it?


I also found a gorgeous rosey vintage sheet that I have made into a couple of cushion covers.


 Such a beautiful bright and sunny day in Brisbane today.

Do you remember where the dining room changes all began?


Have a lovely weekend!

I love the new chairs! Must start doing the rounds at garage sales...who knew there were such great items to be found out there?!

Very nice Pam and what a bonus that they were already painted. I hate all the little bits of touch up painting that is needed around a house, you always look at it but never get around to it! ;-)

The chairs were a great find Pam, they match the table perfectly. Love the fabric on the cushions and the little fabric? rings about the shutters. Super cute. Enjoy the sunshine, lucky thing. Tam x

It's the little touches that make a house a home as they say. I love the fabric rings, the tiles on the corners of your table and of course, your georgeous cushions.

What a find Pam. Fabulous chairs and they fit in with everything so perfectly. But it's those cushions I'm in love with. How cool is that fabric. Have a lovely weekend. We are enjoying crisp, clear days down here in Sydney too. Let's all enjoy them while we have them. Pxxx

What great chairs Pam, and what a blessing - already painted!
I have white walls and will pass on a tip - when I move picture hooks I rub a stick of white chalk over the hole that's left and it vanishes ;o) (I also use it when I remove the Xmas decorations that have been held in place with drawing pins).
Have a great weekend.

Jealous!! That is exactly the look I would love for this little beach shack...beautiful and what a great garage sale find!
At least I have got rid of my blue lounge chairs hoorah!! Now I have brown ones( not my ideal colour choice but servicable) and they are super comfy!
Hope your weekend is wonderful,

Wow, sweet find! You are so lucky to have found them already painted too, it can be a pain to paint turned legs, etc. I also love your table. Thanks for following and leaving a comment on my new blog, too :)

I LOVE that cushion! You are so clever Pam. Great chairs too. What a great week you had. I hope that this week is just as fabulous...let's hope this rain doesn't hang around for too long!

Best wishes always,
