Little Blue Cafe Set

Just finished this neat little set . . .

I've had these chairs for a while and debated whether I wanted to do anything with them (they were white with not-so-pretty pink floral cushions).  When I found the little table at a garage sale last Friday, I knew it would make this work.  Ben and I spray painted them a royal blue.  Then (inspired by the expensive cafe chairs from Pottery Barn and Ballard Designs) I decided to go with wooden seats.  I was on my way to the lumberyard to buy some 1 x 4's, but had to stop at the thrift store and wouldn't you know--found a bunch of boards that were part of an old quilting frame!  Perfect!  The boards add a lot of character--you can't see it in the photos, but they have little "dents" where the c-clamps held the quilting frame together.  Ben gets all the credit for this project--couldn't have done it without him!
