Paisley !

Well this weekend I'm tackling the dining room set I bought a couple of months ago !
December 10th to be precise - 2 months sitting here waiting patiently. ( seller's photo )

This is the set I've been trying to convince John we should keep ( and sell ours ) so far it looks like I'll have to sell it.


I had so many different ideas for this in the span of that time -

But in the end I've decided to go with ASCP Pure White and slightly distressed - I'm going to keep the paint job as easy on the eyes as possible because............................



This is the fabric I've chosen to do the seats in - pretty wild, right?

I have the winter ":blues " and want this set to look fresh and " Spring " like.

Does anyone else like it - or do you think I'm nuts?

( It's ok to think I'm nuts ................I'm of that mind myself ! )

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone !
Hugs,
Me

  2. I love paisley and love the fabric choice. It's exactly what I'm looking for for my dining room. I'm adding a boho chandy and going from there. Maybe when the set is done you can keep it.

  4. You've definitely got cabin fever, Dr. Jan says so. I feel your pain -- I have it too. Twenty below zero F today with 30 mph winds whipping out of the north. Not fair -- spring should be on the way, not a return to the depths of winter! I don't like that paisley for upholstery, don't think it will hold up and the white background color -- it's an accident waiting for food to drop on it, but as a backing (tacked up, not glued on) for the china hutch, would add a great touch of spring-time color. And if you don't like it, or if you get tired of it and want to switch out for the seasons, it's easy enough to take the tacked-up fabric down. If I had china and pretty dishes and knick-knacks on display in my china hutch instead of having it stuffed to the brim with weighty tomes (and my egg collection), I would try something similar.

  5. Oops! Light blue background, not white. LOL! In addition to cabin fever, I'm also losing my eyesight. Dr. Jan

  6. Love the fabric. I am not a flower print person so if I want a real print my choice is almost always paisley. Love stipes ans checks but sometimes a girl needs more. The colors are so bright and fun!! Hope you can convince John it is a keeper.

  7. I love paisley, but I'm not a fan of those colors - too drab together. Almost like they wanted to be bright and sassy, but then their grandmother came along and said she loved the '70's and their free-wheeling vibe. Personally, I'd prefer that same pattern in a colorway that included reds, hot pinks and oranges with a tiny bit of taupe and charcoal, which seems to me would be more likely to add pop to this decade's idea of neutrals. But that's just me - and I know whatever you do with that furniture will look fabulous!

  14. That sure is a lovely dining set but going to be perfectly honest here. I wouldn't buy that set because of the bright / wild paisley fabric. It just wouldn't fit in with my décor. Now that's just me. I like more of the neutral / natural tones; something that would go with almost any décor. Something with a tan or beige with thin stripes maybe; something like a light coffee and cream colors or an Angela Cream or tan.
    Oh, I know, being you're doing the table in pure white; why not black and white checkered only using heavier fabric besides a table cloth. :}

  15. Suzan the fabric is fabulous! Reminds me of Koi :))) in living,swimming color. :) Can't wait to see the size of the print in relation to the chairs!

  17. I,ve loved paisley prints since the '60's when I had a shirt dress (remember those?), it was a bright print similar to the one you have. I say paint it and take pics of your's and put it on Craig's list. If he's anything like Dave he won't even notice till 6 months down the road... xo Patty

  21. I'm not a huge fan of paisley, but I have to admit, I like the bright colors in that fabric. I also have to admit that the first time I ever even thought I might like paisley was on your floor! Maybe you're going to make a paisley believer out of me yet!

  23. This looks a lot like fabric I've used for a kitchen bench. So colorful and fun!

    Also, my Mother taught school and had the cutest little girl in her class named "Paisley!"

  27. Mr. FT Loves paisley so much that I broke down and bought him a duvet with a paisley cover this Xmas. He would definitely give you two thumbs up on this fabric choice. I have to say it's grown on me too! This turtle says yay!!
