Dining Room Redeux: Chairs & Table

Still a lot of work to be done in that dining room! Today I did a trial run on painting a chair. It looks good but I think darker chairs and table will do better with the light walls and molding. Still not 100%. Thoughts? You can see before and after below.
Sidenote** That fabric on the light chair is not forevers.. just temporary to go with the current color scheme. I must save some money for the right fabric and decide on some swatches.**


Here are 2 that I like. The color scheme is pistachio green, deep orange, and taupe/brown. Since this room opens to the living room, they need to co-ordinate.

and i found this awesome table at Salvation army today. I will likely buy it and paint it to go with the current chairs. I like all mis-matchy chairs but the current table is too small and traditional, So I am trading it for some services from a friend.

I would love some feedback on all of the above. Especially any fabric ideas! Let me hear you in the commensts!

I like the darker and just from experience lighter chairs show marks, dust, and dirt more readily.

Darker chairs, orange fabric. :)

I disagree, I like the lighter color. I think it shows off the chairs better, but I do like the orange fabric! and how big is that shaker leg table? I love that one! Excellent find!

I like the lighter chairs, but maybe you could distress them a bit to make them work w/ your hutch. Also, distressing them will help when they get a little banged up and the paint chips. Orange fabric is rad.

I am loving the direction you are taking with the table and chairs. I think darker is better on the chairs especially with a bright bold fabric for the seats. It will definitely make them pop. I am a huge fan of mismatched chairs too! Can't wait to see the finished product!

I love all the progress being made, can't wait to bring Emma up and see it in person-we will be coming to see Grannie early for Thanksgiving and will be there for 4-5 days. Any chance you could come through here before then? Anyway, I like the darker chairs, it's more antiquey looking. Get your mom involved in it and it will be profesh by sundown!

for this shape and your colors, painted chairs are a hundred times better. I like both patterns you show. Depends on other stuff in the room...

Erik seems like a big help! :) I like the darker chair with the green fabric, maybe. I do love the orange fabric though. It is awesome. I don't know. You always make stuff look great.
