Smart Thinking......Chairs...

Welcome to Shug's Place! 

  I simply love decorating.....Decorating makes me happy and content!

                                                                                   Borrowed Photo....

Chairs can add a lot of character to any table or room!

I fell in love with these chairs, so I am now on a mad hunt to find the exact chairs that I I can PAINT them in bright colors. still my tender heart!  Aren't they adorable?  A friend of mine used these at a recent luncheon that I attended.   I wanted to bring these chairs home with me.

can you see the turquoise chair that is peeking from behind the centerpiece?  It is such a beautiful color!!

This gorgeous orange chair caught my eye in a hurry!!
I could so use this one in my house......

Simply adorable!!

Now....let me give you a tip for making chair covers!!

Another friend of mine was very clever in making her chair covers for this same luncheon....

You know.....these days, chair covers can really cost a whole lot of money, and when you have 8 to 10 chairs to cover, the total cost can add up quickly.

My friend Kathy, made a trip to "Garden Ridge Pottery" and purchased two shower curtains.  She cut them into strips of 4 and had instant chair covers.   She added a little two sided tape to the sides in order to keep them from slipping.  

Here is another one......

Isn't this clever??

Join me later this week for more decorating tips!!

Sweet Blessings,
Shug ~

I hope you find your chairs, I have a friend with a Boutique in this city that has lots of those chairs, you are too far away though, the shower curtain is a great idea,

I just love your decorating tips! Because I LOVE to decorate and I decorate for each season and occasion. But I do not do it well or to my liking, I am not talented at it! LOVE these chairs, it would be so cool to have a set of ones all painted these beautiful colors. I also really like the wicker and teal set, and they would be soft on the bottom!

Those look like fun.
I had my chairs painted different colors once...but they were primary colors...not these fun VIBRANT COLORS you've shown here.
Makes for a great little party scene.

Good luck finding the French chairs - everyone is hot on their trail. Love the shower curtain idea. Thanks for sharing. (I have never seen a live armadillo - they are dead in the road around here!)

Having them all different colors is such fun and you could always repaint them any time! Enjoy your week! Hugs!

The shower curtains are a great idea! And, I love to use color on my table in placemats and/or colorful dishes.
