Antoinette Dining Room Chairs

I've been working on some house projects. The latest has been my dining room chairs. I bought these four from REDO. (click on that name for the link to their FB page) They have a shop in Boone, IA that is open on the weekends. It's a great place to look for project pieces.


 Someone had started to paint them but never finished. They were all scratched up and in need of some love but I thought they would be great. They have a charming cottage feel to them. Here's another "before" picture so you can see the details...


My farmhouse table is painted in French Linen ASCP. I have found that French Linen looks great with pink. So, I bought a new color.... "Antoinette" is her name and she is lovely! Pink just makes everything a little better in my book.


Here's how the chairs look now...


and now with the table...




Sweet Antoinette was the perfect touch... love these two colors together!




Thanks for stopping by!
I'm working on finishing up a few projects in my bedroom so that should be coming soon.

  1. That looks great! I have used French Linen a lot but never thought how lovely Antoinette would be with it. Too bad I have a house full of men, but I will keep it in mind for pieces to sell. Thanks!

  10. Love it. I am currently making over an old dressing table in ASCP Antoinette. I lined the drawers with cut out magazine pictures of pink flowers and glued and polycrylic over them. Sort of a collage of pink inside each drawer. Still have to do the mirror!
