The red chairs are so cool. I really like them.
What a pretty new change they make in your dining. xoxo

First of all it is a great deal of 6 such nice chairs @ $100. You hit the jackpot! Your idea of oilcloth cushions (different in each chair) sounds good.

Antique Chairs

These chairs can definitely add value to home. We can instantly update chairs by replacing old. Anyone can give the illusion of a completely new atmosphere by using these chairs. Thanks!

They are beautiful!

An amazing find (especially for the price you paid but I suppose that's what craigslist is for).

Paula Jo @ Home and Garden Decor

I just love your kitchen. You done a wonderful job with the chairs. So adorable!!

Carrie Mizell

Wow! The chairs look great. I thought I was doing good buying two antique twin beds off Craigslist last week for $175, but I think I like your chairs better :)


Red just makes a room pop! Your room is so cheery! My eye is always drawn to red. Love it! You definitely have what I call "the decorating gift". What a delight such eye candy!


You can't go wrong with red is my motto!! BUT what I'm noticing is under the table, is that painted tile? I've been thinking about painting the ceramic tile backsplash in my kitchen....how did you do it and does it wear well?


Love them!, Where did you get the wonderful rug??? painted canvas??? Did you paint it?? The chairs look great!!! I love the red!!!!!!!

Susan Freeman

I love them ~ I really love them! They are the cheeriest chairs. Kathy Sue is so lucky to have received 2 of them for her birthday. You must show us where she is using them in her adorable cottage. Love the oil cloth seats too ~ pretty and practical too. Have a very Happy Mother's Day!

Kathy Sue

Tina I am loving my chairs to. And I love yours with the different colors of oilcloth. Love how Milton paints them .Thank you a million times for my chairs. I feel very lucky !!!! Thanks for the birthday wishes.


Gorgeous! Certainly can't go wrong with red!


Wow! Love them!!!!


Love that run under the table!!

Rita May

Oh Tina! How perfect those chairs look in your kitchen. I had (brown) pressed back chairs just like that and sold them years ago. :( Look what I could have done! Painted them. Just when I though your kitchen couldn't get any cuter...there you go!
Rita @ May Days


Love the cheerful red color and the fact that each seat is different. So pretty!!

Marilyn (in Dallas)


The chairs look great. I'm so glad you painted them red. I painted my kitchen chairs red awhile back and I love them. The oil cloth seats are the cutest! Have a Happy Mothers Day and Happy Lollie Day to you!


BE STILL MY HEART!!!!! Love these chairs!! I would have never thought of oil cloth for the seat but what a cleaver idea, easy to clean and so cute. I've got oak patterned back chairs that I am so tired of, hmmmmm red??? My favorite color in the kitchen too. The wheels are turning. You get my in soooo much trouble Miss Tina!! Thanks and enjoy your NEW chairs.

Lisa~A Cottage To Me

Great color for your home!


Love Love Love the red chairs with the white table. Do you paint with a brush or do you use a spray paint machine and what kind of paint do you use?


Love these chairs. Could you tell us how you prepped and painted them? I just painted two chairs for my grandchildren which I prepped with Kilz and then painted and the painted is scratching off.


Those chairs are so cool! I really like them.
What a pretty new change they make in your dining. What a great price!

You hit the jackpot. The different oilcloth cushions is such a cute idea. I know your busy Lolly, but I sure miss your posts.


Tina I love your red chairs. They look really good with your table, painted white. I visit the Camp's every time I go
to Canton, really nice people. They always have something I can't live without. I love the way you used a different print on each one. You always find the best bargins on Craigslist. You lucky duck and tell Kathy Sue happy birthday and I'm jealous she gets
two of the pretty red chairs. :)




I love them !

My husband would flip - red is his favorite color. I use to have a country blue kitchen when I was single. Got married - now it is RED hah

I love your entire home - so warm, cozy !
