Red Bamboo?! Crazy Town Part Deux

Puff says: "I don't know. I haven't decided if I like it yet."
Tess says: "Why YES! The fabric matches ME! I think I'll pose with it!"

Gratuitous caladium and maidenhair fern garden porn.

I found my 3/4 yd piece of zebra ultrasuede! I could only do two of the chairs with it, so I need to hunt some more down on ebay. Or somewhere.

I love my new eating area! The table under there is an old painted drop-leaf that was on our back porch when I was growing up in New Baltimore. I "called it" from Mom's house. (My sister and I actually didn't fight over much stuff, surprisingly enough!) I need to paint it, so it can be used without a tablecloth, even though I really like eating on a tablecloth. Lord knows I have enough of 'em!

Details: Spray paint Rustoleum American Accents, Colonial Red, Smooth Satin Finish (Lowes)
Wall Paint: Olympic Premium, Satin Latex, Color: Morning Fog (Lowes)
All of the trim and wainscotting paint is Olympic exterior satin finish white off the shelf.

You're getting all Hollywood Regency on us, all of a sudden! LOL Just kidding. I love the chairs -- the red, the zebra. Love. Them.

LOVE IT! Love the red cahirs with the zebra, so SWAC!

Cute, cute vingette going on there! Just sweet. I am so loving your CrazY TOwN! It works. The blue is so pale it lets the chairs take center stage.

Hey if this is crazy town I gotta visit soon. The chairs look terrific in red paired with zebra!
I am still trying to get my mind around the $7 for all 4 chairs! They look like a high end boutique store find.
Cute cats!

Yeah, Ok, JeanMartha. I'll be right over. :-P

It's actually so cool to have chairs back in there again, with a REAL table. "My" chair is in the corner by the window. I called it. :)

Okay. I TOTALLY LOVE the chairs!! Hope you can find more of that zebra fabric - it's perfect! Crazy Town no more!

Rose said...

You so cuh-razy! I love love love the easy breezy style you have in your space. It's free to breathe, not crowded with stuff (garden porn is just enuff, not too much). I love that you simply painted the bamboo chairs red; that's it. No faux fakeness or anything. Red. Love it. You rock. So does Tess.

Man oh Man oh Man! Love, love, love the colors and touches you've used. Light blue, Deep Raspberry Red, Zebra Print, Toile, etc., etc., etc. . . . and it falls together in the MOST Swacalicious way. Simply WOWZA to the Nth degree. Sigh . . . I need to get you down here. Seriously.
