I've been on the hunt for a Duncan Phyfe table for weeks, and my efforts finally paid off the weekend before we moved. I found the perfect table with 8 chairs (2 kid's chairs included) and a leaf.
The table and chairs will probably need to be refinished at some point, but for now I decided to just recover the seats.
I can't remember a time when I didn't absolutely love cobalt blue. It's not a color I use or wear much, so when I thought about what color/fabric to use for these chairs I immediately knew this was my chance to use my fave shade of blue without it going terribly array. So I made a trip to my local fabric store and picked an awesome Electric Blue velvet.
I can't even tell you how happy I am with the results. I love how the blue velvet compliments the dark wood of the table and chairs, and adds a funky touch to the otherwise too-pretty formal dining room.
I plan on sharing more Before & Afters as I get further into making this house a Home, so stay tuned...
