I’ve been wanting a round table for my square dining room.  The dining room is exactly 12ft by 12ft and the rectangular table I had in there wasn’t the best fit.  A few months ago, I found a 60inch round dining table with 4 chairs on Craigslist.   The finish wasn’t what I was going for so I had visions of painting the table and chairs myself.  I ended up a little scared to paint a table that people would use and see often so I had it painted (black) instead.    But, I did tackle the chairs myself.   I painted them bright white and changed the seat cushion fabric.  It was really pretty easy.The problem was, I wanted the table to seat 6 but I only had four chairs.   I also didn’t want to spend a lot of money on 2 new chairs.   I looked around at my favorite stores (Homegoods, Marshalls, TJ Maxx) and at garage sales.  I found chairs chairs that would work, but they were too expensive, then I found inexpensive chairs that wouldn’t work because they were the wrong size.    Finally, last week I found two matching chairs at Goodwill.   They were sturdy and in good shape and $13 for the pair. Score!

I painted those suckers white, and reupholstered with fabric matching the other 4 chairs and they fit right in!  Here’s a quick phone pic of the after.
