Gonna Throw a Wrench In It!



Last week I sought out your advice on what to paint my patio table and chairs (you did NOT disappoint!). I was all set to go with the yellow...and then...one trip to Goodwill changed it all up again. These little beauties called to me from across the store, "Pick us! We're cute and mid century, and we look like your house!" After I got over the shock of the talking chairs, I listened to thier sage advice. At 5 bucks each, I didn't feel too badly about this spur of the moment purchase. 
Yes, I did say 5 bucks each. 

They are very sturdy with nice clean lines. The legs need to be sanded a little and restained, but that will be the easy part. The hard part is I am now thrown back (rather rudely) against the drawing board as far as paint colors. My new thought, Deep Teal for the table and chairs with a lighter patterned fabric for the seats. Here is a rough inspiration board for ya. 



Yes? No Way? Hate it? Love it forever and always? Help!
