I found this really cute cake stand in a light-light blue:
Here's another angle of the base:
I thought it would go perfectly with the other dishes in our china cabinet. Add a little blue to the white and yellow dishes we already have and play-off the blue stripes of the shelf paper.
But that wasn't the real find, the real find was these lattice back chairs!!!
Check out that back!
I'm really excited about them. I've been wanting to get some new dining room chairs for a while, but chairs can be expensive! I found a set of four of these for $10 each and they seem pretty stable and the cushions are nice and soft. I can't wait to paint them and get new fabric for the cushions. I'm not sure exactly what colors to go with, I'll probably do some internet searching tonight. Since the dining room is a rich and bright green color I'll have to work with something that will fit in with the current color scheme. I was thinking maybe white with a patterned fabric something like this:

Or maybe a really light-light robin's egg blue with a simple off white canvas fabric. Something sort of like this:
From Lulu Interiors
I'm not sure what to do?! Any ideas??
