I just love a bargain.  I found these two chairs at a 50% off sale at Habitat Restore.
I loved the size, shape and scale but not the color. 
So...I painted them a glossy black to sit beside a table that used to be my Grandmothers.

I received a very special heirloom that used to be my Grandmothers.  It had belonged to my great grandmother before that.  So, needless to say it was a very special piece.  I have it displayed in my front bay window but had not found anything worthy enough to place next to it, until now.  I thought these woud be perfect with a little TLC.

I remember being told in one of my design classes that every room needs something black in it. Your grouping of the chairs and table meets the requirement and looks great.

Beautiful job!
