I had halted working on the dining room because I have been trying to sell this table so I can buy another one but it's been a no-go. While I don't have a problem with having a glass table per se.. I think it's the base that really bothers me. So, I'm gonna change out the base.
This photo from House Beautiful, has inspired me:
I LOVE how glam this glass table looks with the more traditional chairs. Now, I really can't tell what the base is of this table so, I took a guess and came up with a CLEAR base.
I took to checking eBay to see if something like this existed and it does!!
LUCITE TABLE BASES!! YAY!!!!
This is so exciting for me because I was thinking I would be stuck with this table forever and never finish the dining room. #winning
The table base and the chairs will go into the basement and I will finally get around to finishing my Regency chairs.
I'm re-upholstering them in faux Croc, Ostrich or Python and possibly paint the chairs a glossy gray, white, black or maybe fushia.
Clearly, I need to really hammer down some details but just knowing I can use this table and get going with decorating, gives me so much joy!
Oh and after trolling Craigslist for what seems FOREVER, I found some Asian style "captain" chairs at a price I wanted to spend.
These are gonna look "fon-kay" after I zhush them up. Swath in a faux skin and some glossy paint.. Oh, Chile!
