Cherry Dining Set in Azure Blue

I've never done a dining set in such a bright color before. Two years ago, when I all I could sell was furniture in black, white, or tan, this would have been sheer madness. These days, it seems the brighter the better. I totally support this; if you're going to buy painted furniture, go for color!

Clearly the photo shoot setting leaves much to be desired, but I wasn't feeling the lighting in my workshop either. We're all going to be adults about this, and pay attention to the dining set and ignore the horrible snow. The set of six matching chairs are solid cherry, antique, and some of the best I've ever seen. I unmarried them from a table that needs work and paired them with this superb vintage cherry dining table. The paint surface is a pale blue under a custom mixed azure blue, with distressing to show both layers, and then a dark wax to finish the job. The seats are covered in a goooorgeous upholstery fabric with just a hint of opalescent sheen that you can't see in the pictures.

The table also comes with three leaves, two in matching cherry, or if you want to get wild, the third one is painted and distressed to match the chairs and table base.

  1. Wow, that's a lot of snow. It looks quite cheerful though, in the sun. I love your al natural staging. It's perfect! And since I have been following your blog from the very beginning (yes, I did this in about a month so far), I got quite bored of black or white table sets. This is so refreshing and gorgeous.
