I took another trip to the antique mall today and bought a great set of chairs. The photo shows what they look like. These chairs are actually new and recently produced. I have been looking for a set of chairs like this and at thirty-five dollars each I couldn't walk away. My initial thought was to paint them in a bright color, but I am not entirely sure that I should. I also think the blond wood is a great look.
Would you paint them or leave the wood as it is?
I am also wondering what sort of table I should pair them with. I want to avoid a kitchen that looks like a retro diner, but I don't want to choose a table that is so distinctive of another era that they look odd together.
Do you think that I could pair them with a similarly styled table without the room looking overly retro?
Should I choose a different style of table instead?
