Modern Windsor Dining

I’ve been updating my dining room with a modern spin lately.  I hit a snag….a lovely Windsor bench I’ve owned for almost 20 years.  So, I decided to add another Windsor chair into the modern mix so the bench wouldn’t seem so out of place. Sadly, the Comb Back Windsor I found had seen better days. 

Using Annie Sloan’s Graphite Chalk Paint, along with the dark wax, this chair has made a comeback! 

This was step one…bringing both the old and the modern Windsors around the table. The next picture shows the finished project including the new rug and the buffet/side bar (which is another post all together).  

Now…what to put on the table?!?!?!

    As the 80s are creeping back into our decor trends, these classic colonial shapes and designs are undergoing a resurrection and I could not be happier. Your pieces look amazing and the style blends so well with other styles. Love, love, love what you have going on here!

    I love how you repurposed your chair! You’ve done a great job in this room! I struggle with table centerpieces as well! I would love to do something that I can change with the seasons.
