I love this idea! This photo was taken at Sarah Jessica Parker's home, as featured in Elle Deco. See how the black paint unifies a group of otherwise mismatched dining chairs?
The chairs really stand out against the white walls. The uniformity of the black also brings out the lines of the chairs. Very elegant and structural, and a great way to use stray thrifted chairs. This look reminds me of Meredith's black chairs and table. Her table decorations stand out so beautifully!
As soon as the sun comes out, I'll be posting photos of the chair we painted and re-covered last weekend. It snowed today, so it's very dim in the house today. I actually had to turn the heat on for the first time in weeks. June in Montana, I guess!
