But today the sun came out, and since I was a trooper and did paint in that clammy weather, I have a fabulous new dining set to share with you. I purchased the vintage solid pine table at the flea market two weeks ago. I got the set of six Queen Anne cherry chairs from a wonderful MCM house in West Hartford. They were built c.1965 by the Blowing Rock Furniture Company.
I painted the chairs and table base in a matte black, lightly distressed along the edges, and added a new glorious chunky pine top to the farm table. I upholstered the chairs in a gray that leans heavily towards slate, though there is just a hint of green in the fabric in the right light.
It's all set for a new home and I know one of you needs this for your Thanksgiving Dinner!!
