New dining room chairs

This is how our new dining room chairs look like at the moment. We got them from 't Gemakje in Leiden. Basically all furniture at 't Gemakje is painted white. When I told my boyfriend I want to buy chairs from there, he was quite thrilled. He thought GREAT, we just buy four white chairs and he does not have to do anything. Well... as you can see things did not go quite as he planned.

These chairs were the best of them all. Though being old, they are very solid, comfy and... brown. My feet even touch the floor when I sit on these, which was not the case with our previous chairs (yes, I am quite short). Now there is just that wee job left which involves sandpaper, paintbrush and a bucket of white paint. And I know just the right man for the job ;-)

Oikein hyvän näköiset ja valkoisena sitten vielä paremmat:)Sopivat varmasti tyyliin paremmin kuin ne entiset pehmustetut.Ihanat nuket,taitavat olla enkeleitä:)

Sitten kun tuolit ovat valkoiset,niiden pienet yksityiskohdat eli nuo uurteet ynnä muut "kaiverrukset" tulevat paremmin esille ja ne ovat näiden tuolien "se jokin" vaikka mallikin on oikein hyvä:)

Oh, how our men suffer. Well alas it can´t be helped, when there is a job to do it has to be done :-)
Nice chairs. We have chairs that fit my height (I am one of the short people too) but the table is too high. So I still sit on a cushion....

Hi Katja, beautiful chairs you have bought by 't Gemakje. I have found the shop too by you and it is a great shop with very much things in so little place.
A nice koninginnedag for you too.
Groetjes Marja.

Here I am again, yes I think we live near by, the pictures were made at the amsterdamse waterleidingduinen in Vogelenzang.
We live in Leiderdorp and go walking in the dunes because we love it.

Hi Katja, this is funny: you've got brown chairs and we too have brown painted chairs in our diningroom. I'm busy to make them white as well! I wasn't really very urgent, but since I've got some more time before family and friends are coming the 11th of May, I do this as a 'bonus'. I'll put a photo in the coming days. Your chairs have a nice shape!
Groetjes, Marjolijn
