day 104: {chairs}

I am always on the lookout for interesting chairs to use as props for photography.  Today I went out to MCC (the new one that is just furniture! It’s HUGE!)  and I found this set of four magnificent chairs.  I knew I wanted them immediately.  Imagine my disappointment when just as I told the salesman I wanted them, I saw another couple testing out one of the chairs.  ”Don’t worry!  We only want one!” They said.  What?  Who just buys one from a whole set?  Thankfully, the salesperson said it can only be sold as a set, and since they didn’t want all of them, I got it.  Yes!  The more I thought about it, the more I thought that I wanted them as my regular kitchen set.  I have been thinking of repainting my table white (it’s just a plan table from Ikea, and the finish is really scratched up).  Above is my plan for the chairs (forgive the crudeness of the mockup…I did it fairly quickly).  Part of me is torn, because the chair in it’s original state matches my record player cabinet perfectly.  However, they do need to be refinished (the varnish is quite sticky, and the fabric and stuffing needs to be replaced).  And this is the most versatile of all my options.  I can’t wait to start! (haha…when I find time between now and christmas… :S )
