It's all finally coming together. Last year, we bought our "haunted" dining room table off Craigslist, and started the search for chairs to go with it. When I told you about the table last year, I shared my idea of using the chairs from Jim's old table that we sold.

The problem with them was they were the wrong color of wood. Next to the mahogany table, the pecan chairs looked drab and lifeless...at least to me they did.

So with the idea that I'd paint two at a time, so we wouldn't be without chairs to sit on, I started by painting two of them white. They looked great! I played around with the idea of painting them yellow, but Jim vetoed that idea. He liked the white better... I still have the yellow idea in the back of my head though, so who knows.
