Cottage Dining Room with Painted Furniture


Now that my dining room has new curtains and my hutch has a new paint job, it was time to change up the space a bit more.

I love my ladder back chairs.  I have 3 of them, two that match and one that is slightly smaller.  This is what they looked like originally.


  
 
Oy that orange!!!!!  Thankfully now a distant memory...

My dining room hutch now looks like this



And the chair - not so cute anymore...

With my new creamy white linen drapes and my gorgeous turquoise hutch, I picked up some new turquoise cushions for my wicker dining room chairs.  Then I went to town painting my chairs turquoise (naturally!).

Here's the new dining room:







Someday I'll get around to painting the walls as well.  I really love the pops of bright blue!

Have a great day!

It makes such a difference when you have a few coordinating pieces. Love that aqua shade. I like the way you left the natural wood colour on the 'counter' of the hutch. Great work Anne!

I adore what you've done with the chairs and the hutch! I love the color and it looks lovely! I was just thinking to myself that maybe…possibly…it might be time to paint the walls when you said "someday I'll get around to painting the walls"! Great minds, I guess. :)

I love the wicker chairs and I adore the color you painted the cabinet. Later today, I am using a similar color on a box for the wedding.

Anne your ladder back chairs look so much nicer painted turquoise. Love your dining room - so inviting! Where did you guest those fabulous square dinner plates?

Love the chairs. You and I have similar taste. Not only do I have a similar hutch but a si,ilar desk that is in pine. Been trying to decide if I wanted to paint the desk. Seeing yours made up my mind. Now to just get it painted. :}

Looks like a cozy spot to sit down and share a good meal & conversations with friends :-) The chairs look great in turquoise, and I'm guessing those are original paintings by Anne on the wall? :-)
