PROJECT: CHAIRS!! YOU DECIDE WHAT I SHOULD DO!!

BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.....

TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS.......

GO WITH YOUR GUT......

YOU HAVE A VOICE!!!!

NOW USE IT AND TELL ME WHAT TO DO!!

I recently snagged 4 of these beee-utiful chippy white metal chairs at a yard sale.

We're dealing with 1986 sateen decorator fabric

in a stunning "Williamsburg blue" stripe.

{If I had the token goose cookie jar with the big blue bow, these would be adorable!}

Anyway...change is a comin and it's all up to you!

I had two good ideas and now I'm at the corner of Decorators Block and Indecisive Ave.



My first idea was to do each one in a different vintage feedsack....









I love the color combinations of the faded blues, green, reds.....



see what I mean?

cute!






That was all well and good til I remembered I had this fabric stashed away.....




and well now ....you can see why I need help!

The feedsacks make um all one of a kind...truly unique and more versatile for the buyer.

The red is very specific but looks crisp and modern in a country farmhouse way.
PLEASE TELL ME WHAT TO DO!

I DON'T USUALLY BEG FOR COMMENTS BUT THAT HAS BEEN THROW OUT THE WINDOW!!

PLEASE PLEASE PRETTY PLEASE COMMENT AND LET ME HEAR WHAT YOU'RE VOTIN FOR!

FEED SACKS OR RED GINGHAM!!

Thank YOU!!!!! You're all one in a million!

P.S. Thanks to the ladies that left a comment on the post I did this morning. I did what you suggested and it worked!! ((((hugs))))

NOW please VOTE!!

Bee-Vine said...

What about some of each.. 2 feedsack/2 red checked. I think it would be precious and compliment both patterns.

Hummm...I kind of like the red gingham against the white chippy color of the chairs.

Well....I could save you the trouble of choosing, if you just sell all four to me!!!! LOL I would have a hard time choosing form your choices of fabric, but, I do love the feed sacks and I like the idea of linen with stamping. And, of course, you can never go wrong with ticking!

Sharon Wengel said...

If your selling them individually use the feed sacks . as a set use the red check , I love thm both !

Angela said...

Altho I HEART feedsacks and they are to die for, but in my opinion with the style of the chair you are dealing with, I would go with the red check. So country, farm style. Can't you just see them at an old chippy white table with a big floral arragement of sunflowers? I just love yellows and red together. Or a old farmhouse wood top table mixing in some black accents? Oh well, follow your heart and you won't go wrong. Please let us all know what you decide. Have a great day.

I love the look of all different feedsacks.....very unique! Great chairs btw.

I like the red and white. To me, the grain sacks don't "mesh" with the style of the chairs.

Cabin Fever Primitives said...

My choice...cream and red ticking.

Thanks for visiting my blog! We are kindred spirits junk momma! I super sauce lurve the feed sacks!! Woot woot!

Linda, NE Iowa said...

No doubt - the red check. The feed sacks don't go with the style of the chair. Also, the pale color of the chair needs a bright color for the seats. OK - I'm opinionated. I admit it.

Primitive Souls said...

Hey Beth! Love the chairs....AND the Feed Sack idea....I'd add a little "skirt" of ticking. Hope I get to see what you end up doing!
Norma @ Primitive Souls :)

Diane said...

Feed sacks with small 3" ruffles out of the red/white fabric ( I like the ruffle idea prev. suggested ) This way you get the best of both.
