White Wednesday

I walked into Amy (aka Thistlebees) and Keri's (aka Antique Therapy) booth at the Brimfield Antique Show and I was immediately drawn to this dining room set (gee.... you think the fact that it was white had anything to do with it!). Large oval table with six cane-back chairs and burlap seats.....yeah baby! And if you could have seen how nicely it was showcased (sorry I only took one pic at the show), you would have been too!

All packed up and ready for its new home, and just in time before the showers came passing through. Did I mention my husband enjoys Brimfield as much as I do? How awesome is THAT!??

Got it home, put some felt pads on the bottoms of all the legs and slid it right into place.

I took this picture so you could see the double mirror I bought from Amy at her first Brimfield showing a couple of years back.

I've seen a few dining sets that are similar to this but it was the detail that sold me on this one in particular.

I added these French styled numbers (1-6) to the backs of the chairs. My original thought was to stencil them on but when my search for the perfect font failed....I settled (for now anyway) on these, which are rub-ons I bought at a craft store.

Diane, the dining room set looks great in your home!!! I love what you did with the numbers. I wanted to do something like that on the burlap seats but I ran out of time. You have such a beautiful home. It was great seeing you at Brimfield. Can't wait to see where you put that potting bench!
